FORT COLLINS, Colo. (KDVR) — UPDATE: The suspect in the deadly shooting on Monday is in custody, Fort Collins Police Chief Jeff Swoboda announced on Twitter Tuesday afternoon.

Original: Fort Collins police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a suspect in Monday’s deadly shooting in the 2400 block of South College Avenue.

The fatal shooting occurred around 10:30 a.m. Police are investigating the incident as a homicide.

“What makes this incident even more disturbing is the brazen nature of the attack” said Fort Collins Police Chief Swoboda. “This violent act occurred in broad daylight, along a major corridor with multiple people around. We need the public’s help in identifying this killer so we can remove him from the streets to prevent him from possibly hurting anyone else.”
