WATCH: Procession for Deputy Flick

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - Hundreds lined the streets from North Nevada to the county jail to pay their respects to a fallen hero.

Deputy Micah Flick, 34, was killed while doing his job Monday afternoon -- keeping the community safe.

A stolen car investigation took a violent turn Monday and escalated into a shootout. At the end, Flick and the suspect were dead and two deputies, a police officer and a bystander were all hurt.

Law enforcement and citizens alike took to the streets to salute Flick as a hearse carried him from Memorial Hospital to the El Paso County Coroner's Office.

People who were there say the streets were somber and quiet as Flick passed.

Watch the procession above.
