WELD COUNTY, Colo. (KDVR) — The Weld County Sheriff’s Office is investigating after a man was killed in a shooting near Windsor early Friday morning.

According to WCSO, the homicide happened near Weld County Road 17 and Crossroads Boulevard near Windsor around 1 a.m.

When the sheriff’s office arrived on scene, deputies located a person who had been shot and killed.

The WCSO said deputies and Windsor police officers searched the immediate area where the shooting took place and were unable to locate a suspect.

Investigators learned Trevor George, 32, of Fort Collins, was connected to a stolen Dodge Challenger Hellcat out of Windsor. WCSO told nearby agencies to look out for the car.

About 11 a.m., the Dodge was located going southbound on Interstate 25. A number of agencies tailed the vehicle, and George pulled into a gas station near Mulberry Avenue and Greenfield Court in Fort Collins.

Officers surrounded the Dodge. Officials say George was uncooperative, causing deputies to use their vehicles to prevent him from driving away. Deputies used a Taser to apprehend him.

George was evaluated by medical personnel at the gas station and taken to the WCSO.

He was booked into jail on suspicion of first-degree murder, first-degree murder after deliberation, attempted first-degree murder, possession of a weapon by a previous offender, first-degree assault and four counts of felony menacing. He also faces a number of other theft, burglary and robbery charges, the sheriff’s office said.

The victim has not yet been publicly identified, pending the notification of loved ones.

The sheriff’s office said it is interested in viewing security camera footage from residences near the
scene, particularly from homeowners residing on Crossroads Boulevard between Weld 15 and
Colorado Highway 257.

Anyone who thinks they might have video footage of a suspect fleeing the scene is asked to call Weld County Non-Emergency Dispatch at: 970-356-4000. Reference case number 20W039163.
