DENVER — The Denver Medical Examiner's Office on Tuesday identified a man who was shot and killed by Denver Police on Saturday night as Brandon Cole, 36.
The Denver Police Department (DPD) said officers responded to a domestic violence report in the 2300 block of West Cedar Avenue just before 8 p.m. That's near West Bar Val Wood Park in the Valverde neighborhood.
In a media briefing Saturday night, Denver Police Chief Ron Thomas told 9NEWS witnesses said they saw a man throw a woman in a wheelchair to the ground and assault a 14-year-old child.
Thomas said officers were still investigating the relationship between the man and the victims, but that it was a domestic in nature.
Police said the man approached responding officers in an aggressive manner and kept going when they commanded him to stop. One officer used his Taser, according to police, but it didn't work. Police said another officer shot the man, who later died at the hospital.
DPD said an ambulance was called for the woman, but she ended up not needing to go to the hospital.
