2 sought after shooting officer in Denver, report says

(CNN/WVUE) - A massive manhunt is underway right now near Denver for two people police say shot an officer late last night, according to CNN.

A checkpoint was set up for police to search vehicles.

An officer responded to a home just before 11 p.m. Monday night after someone inside the house called 911, then hung up.

The officer went into the house and encountered two suspects.

There was a shootout and the officer was wounded in the leg and ankle.

The suspects ran from the home and are still wanted Tuesday morning.

Police have set up a  perimeter near the house and continue their search for the two men.
