Man shot by Larimer County sheriff’s deputy dies

LOVELAND, Colo. — A man who was shot by a sheriff’s deputy after a pursuit in northern Colorado has died.

Authorities say the 25-year-old man, whose name has not been released, 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.

The man died at a hospital Tuesday, and the deputy has been placed on administrative leave.

The Loveland Police Department is leading the investigation.
