Man killed in drive-by shooting, investigators looking for suspect

Pecos Street was closed Monday night while police conducted their investigation.

ADAMS COUNTY, Colo. — The Adams County Sheriff's Office (ACSO) is investigating Monday night's drive-by shooting as a homicide.

Deputies are looking for a suspect accused of shooting a man in the 7600 block of Pecos Street around 8:30 p.m. That is near the Pecos Street exit off US 36 just east of Westminster in Adams County.

The man was shot in the chest and taken to the hospital in critical condition and later died from his injuries, according to the sheriff's office.

ACSO said they don't have a good description of the suspect or the vehicle they were in, only that they were described as driving a white or silver full-sized truck. 

Those who needed to drive in the area Monday night were asked to find alternate routes as Pecos Street was shut down in both directions between West 76th Avenue and Elmwood Street while ACSO conducted their investigation.
