ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — An Englewood police officer shot and killed a suspect to end a standoff that involved hostages Friday afternoon. No hostages or officers were hurt.
The situation began shortly before 2 p.m. inside a house in the 2800 block of South Bannock Street.
Officers said they attempted to negotiate with the suspect to release the hostages and during those negotiations, an officer shot the suspect.
A heavy police presence remained in the neighborhood until late Friday night.
Two men and one woman were seen exiting the house one at a time and walking toward officers where they were moved into safe places.
One of the men had a large dog on a leash. Another man came out of the house a little later and walked away from the scene with a police officer.
The officer who shot the suspect was placed on paid administrative leave, which is standard practice. The 18th Judicial District Critical Response Team was conducting an independent investigation surrounding the officer involved shooting.
No further information was released Saturday morning.
