Death
Title
4200 Block of Galley Road
Location
On February 5, 2018, members of the B.A.T.T.L.E. (Beat Auto Theft Through Law Enforcement) task force, comprised of detectives from the Colorado Springs Police Department (CSPD), El Paso County Sheriff’s Office (EPSO), and the Colorado State Patrol (CSP), located a vehicle previously reported stolen from Colorado Springs. The vehicle was surveilled to the 4200 block of Galley Road where detectives observed the suspect exit the vehicle. To alleviate the possibility of a vehicle pursuit or entry into nearby apartments, B.A.T.T.L.E. task force detectives developed a plan to arrest the suspect while the suspect walked through an apartment complex parking lot.

At approximately 3:55 PM, the detectives made contact with the suspect and a struggle ensued. The suspect then drew a handgun and began firing. Three task force detectives then returned gunfire. EPSO Detective Micah Lee Flick was fatally shot, while two additional EPSO detectives and one CSPD detective were wounded by gunfire. A semi-automatic handgun belonging to the suspect was recovered from the scene of the incident.

The CSPD detective shot in the incident is identified as Marcus Yanez. Detective Yanez has been employed by the Colorado Springs Police Department since October 2007. Detective Yanez was treated and released from a local hospital.

The suspect was also fatally shot and died at the scene of the incident. An autopsy was completed by the El Paso County Coroner’s Office on February 6, 2018. The suspect was positively identified as 19 year old Manuel Zetina, a resident of Colorado Springs.

An adult male civilian walking in the area was also shot and wounded as a result of gunfire. He is undergoing treatment at an area hospital.

Information regarding injuries sustained by the EPSO deputies will only come from EPSO PIO.

The CSPD Deadly Force Investigation Team (DFIT) is the lead agency conducting this investigation. Colorado Revised Statute 16-2.5-301 provides the statutory requirements for these investigations. Once the investigation is completed, it will be given to the Fourth Judicial District Attorney’s Office for review. The District Attorney’s Office will then provide their report based on Senate Bill 15-219.

The detectives involved have been placed on routine administrative leave in accordance with agency policy.

Detective Micah Flick’s and Manuel Zetina’s deaths represent the third and fourth homicides investigated by the Colorado Springs Police Department in 2018. At this time last year, CSPD had investigated five homicides. This continues to be an active investigation.

There will be no release of the suspects photograph at this time.

Anyone with information or is a witness to this investigation is asked to call the Colorado Springs Police Department at (719) 444-7000; or if you wish to remain anonymous, you may call Crime Stoppers Tip Line at (719) 634-STOP (7867) or 1-800-222-8477.
