DENVER (AP) - Authorities say a Thornton police officer shot an Adam’s County sheriff’s deputy earlier this month while they were arresting a man suspected in a triple homicide.

The Denver Police Department, which also was involved in the arrest, says the deputy was treated for non-life-threatening injuries after the Dec. 12 shooting. No other details about what led to the shooting have been released.

Detectives from multiple jurisdictions arrested 30-year-old Furmen Leyba after he was on the run for more than two days. Another suspect in the slayings, 41-year-old Gabriel Flores, was arrested earlier after a chase in Jefferson County.

Three men were found shot to death in Adams County on Dec. 10 after a distraught woman called 911 to report a disturbance in the home.

The name of the deputy who was shot hasn’t been released.
