The tearful widow of a deputy shot dead in an ambush attack was comforted by their four-year-old daughter who whispered in her ear, ‘It’s OK momma, it’s OK’ at his vigil Monday night.

Gracie Parrish spoke at Mission Hills Church Monday evening in Littleton where she and her family remembered Zackari Parrish, 29, who was shot dead while responding to a call from a Highlands Ranch, Colorado apartment around 5.15am Sunday.

The gunman, Matthew Riehl, 37, killed Parrish and injured four other officers after firing 100 rounds during a horrific incident that he live-streamed on Periscope.

‘I am overwhelmed with by the love and support of the community and of the nation. Never in my world would I have imagined this,’ Gracie said through tears as she spoke to community members, friends and loved ones, at the vigil.

‘I will raise my girls to love you,’ the heartbroken wife said at the podium as she stood with her two toddler daughters, which can be seen in a video shared by 9 News.

Newly surfaced livestream footage from Riehl’s apartment reveals him screaming early Sunday in a dark room while telling officers, ‘go away, go away! Don’t come in! I’ve warned you. Identify… What’s your name?’ as several shots are fired.

‘Get the f**k outta here! Get out! Leave me alone! Why are you here? You don’t have a warrant,’ Riehl shouted.

Deputy Mike Doyle, 28, Deputy Taylor Davis, 30, Deputy Jeffrey Pelle, 32, – all of the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office – and 41-year-old Castle Rock Police Officer Tom O’Donnell were injured.

Douglas County Sheriff Tony Spurlock revealed at a press conference Sunday that all of the remaining officers are in stable condition.

Authorities had publicly identified Riehl – who was shot dead by the joint task force unit.
