DENVER – Fort Collins police are seeking seven “persons of interest” in connection with  a party-turned-riot that broke out on the evening of April 27 in the city’s Summerhill neighborhood.

The Fort Collins Police Department released images of the subjects to media on Thursday.

Police used tear gas, pepper spray balls and other “less-lethal” weaponry to quell the incident, off West Prospect Road. A group of hundreds of college-aged partygoers allegedly became “unruly and aggressive,” climbing on cars and throwing objects at officers, police said.

People began chanting “f— the police” and officers were forced to retreat to Prospect Road, according to the Fort Collins Coloradoan newspaper.

Officers donned riot gear and pushed back against the crowd around 10:30 p.m. on April 27. Rubber projectiles, pepper balls and two types of tear gas were deployed against partygoers, police confirmed. The crowd dispersed shortly after.

Three people were transported to the hospital for treatment of minor injuries, but no officers were hurt.

If you know the identity of any of the people in these images, police ask that you contact Officer Allen Heaton at 970-221-6555 or Crime Stoppers of Larimer County at 970-221-6868.
