Car theft suspect dies after being shot by officers in Arvada

Multiple officers shot at the suspect when he drove toward them in a stolen vehicle, Arvada Police said.

ARVADA, Colo. — A man was taken to the hospital and later died following a shooting in Arvada that involved multiple officers, according to the Arvada Police Department (APD).

At about 9:07 p.m. Monday, APD responded to a report of a stolen car in the area of W. 58th Avenue and Wadsworth Boulevard and learned that a Ford F-550 tire repair truck was running and unattended when it was stolen.

Roughly 20 minutes later, at around 9:25 p.m., officers used an in-vehicle-tracker to locate the Ford F-550 near 7400 W. 61st Ave in Arvada. It is a dead-end street east of Wadsworth Boulevard.

As officers approached the still-running vehicle, the suspect entered the vehicle and immediately tried to drive away toward officers, APD said. At that time, "multiple" officers who were on foot near the vehicle, fired their weapons, according to APD.
