Last Updated: 149 days ago
PUEBLO, Colo. - Police in Pueblo now say it's unclear whether a man who was fatally shot by officers on Christmas Day had fired at them.
Authorities didn't immediately identify the man. Pueblo County Coroner Jim Kramer told The Pueblo Chieftain that he was in his mid-thirties.
Officers encountered him while responding to a report of domestic violence. Police said the man came out of a house and brandished a gun at officers who arrived on the scene Christmas morning. Initial reports were that the man also fired at officers, but Sgt. Eric Gonzales said Wednesday it's unclear now if a shot was fired or if a door had slammed.
The man was shot multiple times and died at Parkview Medical Center.
