Larimer County deputies shoot suspect after pursuit

WELLINGTON, Colo. — Larimer County authorities are investigating an officer-involved shooting Monday afternoon north of Wellington. 

Authorities say a 25-year-old man was involved in a physical disturbance with a relative in the Red Feather Lakes area Monday morning and left the scene with a handgun before a Larimer County deputy arrived. The man then came back and refused to follow the deputy's commands before fleeing in a car.

He was run off the road during the pursuit and was shot when he got out of the vehicle with a handgun. The man's name and condition have not been released.

No deputies were injured. The suspect’s condition is unknown. 

The 8th Judicial District Critical Incident Response Team has been activated and is investigating the incident, deputies say.
