PUEBLO, Colo. — Authorities in Pueblo County have identified a man who was fatally shot by police as 31-year-old Daniel Gurule of Pueblo.

Gurule was killed early Saturday after an overnight standoff at a Pueblo home.

Police say Gurule had a handgun and refused to leave the house after hours of negotiations.

Authorities say officers detonated a device similar to a stun grenade, and Gurule ran from the house, pointing the handgun at officers.

Police say eight officers opened fire.

Authorities say the standoff began after Gurule fled from a traffic stop.

The officer who pulled over Gurule had discovered Gurule was wanted on a traffic charge in Weld County and asked him to exit his vehicle.

Police say the officer suffered a minor knee injury as Gurule sped off.
