PUEBLO, Colo. (KDVR) — The mother of a slain Colorado Springs parole officer is speaking out.
Angie Guerin said she is shocked and saddened but, ultimately, at peace with her daughter’s tragic death.
“She was just a wonderful, beautiful person,” she said.
Thursday, 50-year-old Christine Guerin Sandoval was killed in the line of duty while trying to make a felony warrant arrest. It happened in Colorado Springs, near West Bijou and North Spruce streets. A second officer involved also was injured.
Guerin said Sandoval was her eldest child. She leaves behind a husband and two children.
“Everything: a wonderful, beautiful daughter, and, I’m sure, wife and mother to her children,” she said.
“She’d help anybody out,” her mother said.
The second injured officer has been released from the hospital.
