WESTMINSTER, Colo. -- Two Westminster Police officers won't be facing any charges after shooting and killing a burglary suspect back in September, the 17th Judicial District Attorney said Friday.
Thomas Tucker Jr., 49, was armed and suspected in a burglary when police confronted him on Sept. 20, according to court documents.
Police spokeswoman Cheri Spottke said officers responded to a report of a burglary in which the victim said he found several people stealing items from his garage. One of the suspects pointed a gun at the victim and punched him in the face.
The group then left in a car and on a motorcycle.
Police located the motorcycle ridden by Tucker, who crashed and then fled on foot. Investigators say Tucker was shot when he showed a weapon.
Police have not found the group of people that fled in the car, a silver Chevy Malibu.
