PARKER, Colo. --A Douglas County deputy was shot near Sierra Middle School, the Parker Police Department confirmed Friday afternoon. The deputy is in critical condition, according to Douglas County Sheriff Tony Spurlock.

The suspect was shot and killed, Parker police told FOX31 Denver. The Douglas County Sheriff's Office described him as suicidal.

Sierra Middle School and several other schools were put on lock down, but the lock down has been lifted, according to a spokesperson for the Douglas County School District. The schools were not directly involved, the sheriff's office stated.

The school is at North Dixon Drive and Pine Lane.

Parker police say they were called to a home on Dixon. When officers arrived, a man fired shots at them, and then got into the RV.
