You know the deal, you are starving so you start driving to Chick-Fil-A to get yourself a deliciously tender chicken sandwich. About halfway there it dawns on you — today is Sunday — Chick-Fil-A is closed. A crushing moment because you are forced to divert your plans and go to an inferior fast food purveyor. Chick-Fil-A has been closed on Sundays since 1946 so that employees can spend time with their families but last week, a Chick-Fil-A in Colorado opened their doors and fryers to feed first responders who were attempting to help victims of a deadly shooting.

On Sunday morning, there was a shooting that happened in Highlands Ranch near Denver. Police were responding to a disturbance call in an apartment complex when a suspect opened fire on several deputies. Three Colorado deputies were wounded during the shootout including Michael Doyle, 28, Taylor Davis, 30, and Jeffrey Pelle, 32. Castle Rock police officer Tom O’Donnell, 31, and two civilians suffered injuries from the ambush. Thankfully, all of which are in stable condition. Sadly, Douglas County deputy Zackari Parrish was killed during the shootout. The 29-year-old Zackari is survived by his wife and two young children.
