On August 27, 2020, at approximately 11:00 a.m., the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office was notified that Wyoming Highway Patrol was pursuing a vehicle southbound on Interstate 25 into Colorado/Larimer County. 

The trooper believed the man and woman inside the vehicle were involved in some type of physical disturbance with each other while the vehicle was moving.  During the vehicle pursuit, both the male driver and female passenger fired weapons at the pursuing troopers.  The troopers were not injured.

Larimer County Sheriff’s Office deputies joined the pursuit as it continued westbound on Owl Canyon Road (CR70).  The pursuit then turned southbound on Terry Lake Road (CR15/HWY1) where the driver rammed the closed garage door of a home near the 8800 block with his vehicle causing significant damage to the home. 

The pursuit continued southbound and ended around 12:00 p.m. near the intersection of E. Douglas Road (CR54) and Terry Lake Road.  The man and woman drove their vehicle into the closed garage door of a nearby residence which allowed them to unlawfully enter the home.  The sole resident of the home was able to safely escape.

Deputies and troopers set a perimeter around the home as the Larimer County Regional SWAT Team responded.  An Everbridge Emergency notification was sent to the immediate area alerting residents to the law enforcement activity and asked them to stay inside their homes.

Larimer County Regional SWAT hostage negotiators successfully convinced the man and woman to surrender.  The man and woman exited the home and were taken into custody round 6:30 p.m. without incident.
