OFFICER INVOLVED SHOOTING: Armed suspect shot and killed in domestic violence incident

ADAMS COUNTY, Colorado (KDVR) — Agents of the Adams County Sheriff’s Office shot and killed an armed domestic violence suspect in northern Denver on Saturday night.

ACSO received a domestic disturbance call at an apartment complex on the 7000 block of Pecos Street and while en route, the suspect was reported with a knife threatening a woman, who upgraded the call to a domestic violence incident.

When officers arrived, the suspect held a knife to the woman’s throat and closed the door. Screams were heard and when officers kicked in the door, the suspect slit the woman’s throat, ADCO told FOX31.

The Sheriff’s Office said the suspect refused to drop the weapon and that’s when officers shot and killed the suspect.

The woman was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, but officers were not injured.
