In a report that was released last week, Cherry Hills Village officer Cory Sack was justified in using his service revolver for self-defense during a home invasion Aug. 20, 2018.
The report, prepared by Larry Bailey, deputy district attorney for the 18th Judicial District, said that Sack knew at the time he fired his weapon that he believed his life, as well as those in the residence in CHV were in imminent danger.
It also provides additional details about the incident where injured Sack was wounded in the leg and ankle. He responded to a 911 call and found the front door of the residence open. Although there were lights on in the home, the entry hallway was dark. He used his flashlight and spotted a suspect dressed in dark clothing who started firing at Sack who immediately returned fire and was able to crawl out of the home before additional law enforcement officers arrived.
Several RING videos were collected as evidence and show four men attempted to enter the home. Two were carrying pistols.
There was approximately $15,000 stolen from the home, including cash and jewelry. Found at the scene was 13 cartridges from Sack’s handgun and eight cartridge cases from the suspects 9mm pistol.
Angelo Alston, 17 was arrested Aug. 31, 2018. He was charged with 32 counts related to the shooting. The felony charges range from attempted murder of a peace office, kidnapping, burglary, robbery, assault with a deadly weapon, theft and menacing.
