GREELEY, Colo — Greeley officers shot and killed a man who had a knife after an hours-long standoff at a home Tuesday, the 19th Judicial Critical Incident Response Team said.
Investigators said just after 11 a.m., officers went to a home in the Meadow Village Mobile Home Park on East 20th Street to arrest a person who had warrants. The man, identified as 33-year-old Benjamin Jackman Weise, retrieved a knife and barricaded himself at the home, investigators said.
After more than three hours of negotiations with Weise and the use of less lethal munitions, "the suspect attempted to exit the trailer towards multiple officers armed with the weapon," investigators said.
One Greeley officer fired multiple rounds at Weise, hitting him. He died on the scene, investigators said.
No one else was injured, investigators said.
