One suspect dead, one injured during officer-involved shooting in Clear Creek Canyon

JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. – A wanted man found in a car associated with an attempted homicide has died after being shot by authorities.

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office says a state trooper found the stolen car parked along U.S. Highway 6 near Golden and called for help after learning it was possibly linked to an attempted homicide in Lafayette.

The suspect was later identified as 19-year-old Ryan Millsap.

Before the officers could reach the car, the sheriff’s office says it began driving forward, leading a trooper and a sheriff’s deputy to fire.

A girl who was in the car was also injured when it went down the road’s embankment.

The sheriff’s office later confirmed the car was involved in the attempted homicide and a chase over the weekend.

It says the man killed was wanted for felonies and misdemeanors in Westminster and Adams County.

No officers were injured.

It’s unclear if the person who was shot has any kind of felony warrants or whether they own the vehicle.
