    Officer Shot During Attempted Sex Offender Arrest

    In my county where I both live and work. About 2 mins from my house. My PD has several SWAT operators (mostly snipers) in play. This shit is getting crazy.

    9NEWS.com | Denver | Colorado's Online News Leader | Police in standoff with suspect after Northglenn Police officer shot

    NORTHGLENN - A police officer was shot and wounded on Monday night as police tried to arrest a registered sex offender, according to the Northglenn chief of police. The situation has now turned into a standoff and police say they plan to go into the home in the next half hour if the man does not surrender.
    Chief Van Houten says police went to a home near Bowman Place and Irma Drive on Monday night to arrest 40-year-old Matthew Anderson. He was wanted on allegations he attempted to lure a 13-year-old girl into a sexual activity. Police were trying to arrest Anderson after a months-long undercover investigation.

    Van Houten says when officers tried to arrest Anderson at his home around 6:45 p.m., he would not answer so five officers had to breach the door. That is when Van Houten says Anderson opened fire, getting off at least two shots.

    Hope the wounded officer recovers quickly, and the standoff ends with no more bloodshed.
