Police said two Northglenn officers were approaching a black Jetta with two men inside when one of the men started shooting. The shots hit one of the officers, but he was protected by his ballistic vest.
"He was taken to the hospital where he was treated and released, so he's in good spirits and doing well," said Northglenn PD Sgt. Michael DiGiovanni. "I can say everybody is relieved that our officer was able to go home today."
The second man inside the Jetta was arrested on charges unrelated to this shooting.
Investigators with Northglenn police, the Adams County Sheriff's Office and CBI were still at the gas station gathering evidence hours after the shooting.
