The Eighth Judicial District Critical Incident Response Team (CIRT) has been activated to investigate an officer-involved shooting.

On June 1, 2022, Colorado Parole requested assistance from LCSO to apprehend an adult male wanted for two felony warrants.  At about 4:46 p.m., the LCSO Strategic Enforcement Unit (SEU) began surveillance at a residence in the 3900 block of Chinook Lane in Fort Collins/unincorporated Larimer County.  At about 8:12 p.m., a vehicle left the property with the suspect inside.  SEU attempted a traffic stop and the vehicle fled.  SEU and parole pursued the vehicle westbound into Fort Collins and terminated the pursuit after about five minutes.

Deputies returned to the home on Chinook at about 8:34 p.m. and located the vehicle they pursued. At about 9:05 p.m., the suspect and a woman left the residence in a vehicle with the woman driving and the suspect in the back seat.  Deputies conducted a high-risk traffic stop on Mariah Lane. The female obeyed commands to exit the vehicle and she was moved to a safe location.  The suspect remained in the vehicle and was seen holding a firearm. 

Deputies attempted to communicate with the suspect giving commands for him to exit the vehicle, but the suspect did not comply.  A shot was fired from inside the vehicle and one deputy fired into the vehicle.  The suspect remained in the vehicle, so the Larimer County Regional All-Hazards/Crisis Response Team (AH/CR) was called to the scene.  A drone was also deployed in attempts to see inside the vehicle.  AH/CR was able to remove the suspect from the vehicle.  He was transported to a local hospital and pronounced deceased. 

The Eighth Judicial District Critical Incident Response Team was activated, and the Loveland Police Department will be leading the investigation.  Fort Collins Police Services will be managing public information and will release more information when appropriate.
