Cherry Hills Village police officer Cory Sack was shot Aug. 20 when he responded to a report of a home invasion. This is the first time a CHV officer has been shot in the line of duty.
According to CHV Chief Michelle Tovrea, a 911 call was received by Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office, and when Sack entered the home, he was confronted by one suspect who opened fire. Sack was shot in the left leg above the knee and the right foot. He has had two surgeries on the leg to repair the shattered femur and will possibly have another surgery at the end of this week on his foot, Tovrea mentioned.
A GoFundMe account has been set up for Sack and Tovrea said approximately $52,000 has been raised and an additional $900 was raised by area kids that set up a lemonade stand over the weekend.
CHVPD is working with other agencies to apprehend four suspects currently being sought, but Tovrea did not have a description outside of two were black men. Anyone with information should contact the CHV Police.
