Deputy shoots, injures man in Larimer County after car chase

A Larimer County deputy shot and injured a man Monday afternoon after a car chase, the sheriff’s office said in a news release.

Deputies responded around 2:06 p.m. to reports of a “suspicious white male” at a Family Dollar in Wellington. When authorities arrived, the man fled in a pickup truck, the sheriff’s office said.

The pursuit ended around 2:24 p.m. at East Mulberry Street and Interstate 25, when a deputy shot the man, according to the sheriff’s office. No deputies were injured, authorities said, and it’s unclear what the condition is of the individual who was shot.

Authorities did not say why deputies initiated a car chase, whether the individual was armed, or what prompted the sheriff’s deputy to fire their weapon.

The eighth judicial district critical incident response team is investigating the shooting, per protocol.
