WELD COUNTY, Colo. — The Weld County Sheriff's Office said deputies arrested a man in connection to a homicide that occurred either late Thursday or early Friday.

The sheriff's office said around 1 a.m., deputies were called to a report of a shooting along the 7900 block of Weld 62 (Crossroads Boulevard), just west of Weld County Road 17 near Windsor. At the scene, deputies found one person who had been shot and killed. The person's identify has not been released.

Deputies were not able to find a suspect in the morning, but said they were looking to talk with 32-year-old Trevor George, of Fort Collins. He was considered a person of interest in the case. Authorities said they thought he was on foot and armed around the Windsor area.

Around 12:20 p.m., the sheriff's office confirmed they had arrested George.

A spokesperson said deputies were able to connect George to a stolen Dodge Challenger Hellcat out of Windsor and a BOLO was issued. Another agency spotted the vehicle around 11 a.m. driving southbound on Interstate 25. Authorities followed him to an exit, where he went to a gas station on the corner of E. Mulberry Street and Greenfield Court. He was taken into custody. He was tased and evaluated at the scene, the sheriff's office said.

He was taken into custody at 11:40 a.m. on suspicion of auto theft, as the homicide case remains under investigation.

The Colorado State Patrol, Larimer County Sheriff's Office and the Fort Collins Police Department were involved in his arrest.

The sheriff's office is collecting security camera footage from homes near the scene of the shooting. Homeowners who live on Crossroads Boulevard between Weld 15 and Colo. 257 and who have footage possibly connected to this case can call Weld County Non-Emergency Dispatch at 970-356-4000 and use reference case number 20W039163.

This is an active investigation. No other information has been released.
