Gary Montez Martin died in a firefight with police last Friday, after shooting company officials during a termination meeting.



Six Aurora police officers were hurt while responding to the shooting. They're all doing okay.

"I'm very proud of our officers. We were following our training. We learned from other mass shootings that you can't sit outside and wait for the gunman to come out. By then it's too late," said Sgt. Bill Rowley, spokesman for the Aurora police.

The department released the officers' names and photos in Facebook post on Monday: Adam Miller, Marco Gomez, John Cebulski, James Zegar, Reynaldo Rivera and Diego Avila.
