For the third time in a little more than a month, Colorado is mourning the shooting death of a law enforcement officer.

Deputy Micah Flick, 34, was shot and killed while the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office was investigating a motor vehicle theft Monday afternoon in the area of Galley Road and Murray Boulevard in Colorado Springs.

It happened on his 11 year anniversary with the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office, according to a tweet.

He leaves behind a wife and 7-year-old twins (one boy and one girl), the sheriff’s office said.

His funeral will be held at New Life Church in Colorado Springs on February 10 at 1 p.m. The funeral will be open to the public. It's going to be in the main sanctuary of the church - called the 'Living Room.'

The church is located at 11025 Voyager Parkway, Colorado Springs, CO 80921.

Flick was a detective and had served in jail as security, in court as transportation, on the special response team and on patrol, El Paso County Sheriff Bill Elder said during a news conference.
