This is Lincoln County (Colo.) Sheriff’s Deputy Michael Hutton. He was shot multiple times in what police are calling “an ambush”. Authorities say the military veteran and school crossing guard is in serious but stable condition.
Deputy Michael Hutton has serious injuries but will survive. The suspect’s body was found in a nearby field.
LINCOLN COUNTY, Colorado — The man accused of shooting a Lincoln County deputy multiple times outside of Limon early Thursday morning has been identified.
Lincoln County Coroner Andy Lorensen said the suspect is Tristin Ensinger, a 25-year-old man from Ohio who died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Ensinger is believed to have shot Deputy Michael Hutton while he was responding to a theft-in-progress call near mile marker 386 of Highway 40.
Hutton has been with the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO) for seven years and is being treated for at least two gunshot wounds at a Denver-area hospital. The sheriff’s office said Thursday that Hutton is expected to survive.
LCSO announced on Twitter Saturday that Hutton had been moved out of intensive care, saying he “continues to amaze us.”
“I struggle to find the word that we lived for those few hours trying to figure out that Mike was OK,” said Captain Michael Yowell, a spokesperson for LCSO. “We called for everybody, we were looking for somebody who just took out 10% of our law enforcement officers. We’re only 10 wide and Deputy Hutton represents 10% of us.”
San Diego, CA – The Cops Off Campus Coalition (COCC) organized a nationwide protest on May 3 to demand police be kicked off school campuses but it wasn’t very successful.
The event, named the “National Day of Refusal,” seemed to find success only in California where students skipped classes and protested on multiple campuses in various major cities.
COCC circulated a petition ahead of the protest that asked students and faculty to pledge to be absent “from work, class, teaching, and more” on May 3, Campus Reform reported.
Signers of the petition promised they were “canceling/refusing to attend synchronous classes, refusing to watch asynchronous lectures, refusing to engage in any form of university-based labor (including email response), refusing to prepare materials (such as a class recording) for later asynchronous use, protecting students, colleagues, and workers from retaliation, and more.”
“As a member of a campus community, I am horrified that—amidst a global pandemic, relentless state and vigilante violence against Black, brown, and Indigenous people, and national calls for abolition—schools across North America have committed to increasing police budgets,” signers pledged. “College police forces are increasingly militarized, and I support the nationwide call to demand cops off our campus to make our university truly safe and free for all, and I will not cross the picket line.”
The petition demanded the removal of all police from all school campuses, public or private, from Kindergarten through college.
