This evening at approximately 7:20 pm, Agents with the Lakewood Police Department were on routine patrol in the area of 13th and Depew when they observed an adult male suspect firing off rounds from a firearm around the area of Mountair Park.
Agents contacted the suspect, but the suspect did not comply with Agent’s orders. The suspect was followed to an alley near 13th and Ames when he reportedly fired more rounds, including several at Agents. Agents returned fire, fatally wounding the suspect. The suspect was pronounced deceased at the scene. A handgun was also recovered at the scene. No Lakewood Police Agents were injured in this incident.
There is no other information on the suspect at this time other than he is an adult male. As is standard with all officer involved shootings, the Jefferson County Critical Incident Response Team (CIRT) will handle the investigation of this incident.
