CHERRY HILLS VILLAGE, Colo. – Officer Cory Sack is “recovering very nicely” after undergoing surgery Tuesday for two gunshot wounds he suffered in a Monday night shooting .

Sack is slated for another surgery Thursday, Cherry Hills Police Chief Michelle Tovrea told Denver7 Wednesday morning. He was shot once above the left knee and once in his right heel, officials said Tuesday.

There is also a GoFundMe page raising money to support Sack and his family in his recovery which is being managed by family members. The page had already raised $2,095 of the $5,000 goal as of 11 a.m. Wednesday.

Tovrea also said Wednesday that there still have been no arrests made in connection with the shooting or the alleged home invasion and robbery that preceded it.

Sack responded to a home on Sedgwick Drive just before 11 p.m. Monday after a 911 hang-up call. When he went inside the home, he found at least two suspects. Police said the suspects and Sack then got into a shootout, in which Sack was hit.

Police said Tuesday they were looking for at least four suspects in connection with the case.

Sack is a seven-year veteran of the police department and had previously worked for the Elbert County Sheriff’s Office. He has a wife and two children.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call 303-761-8711.
