LAFAYETTE, Colo. — Lafayette Police (LPD) are looking for a suspect after a man was shot Tuesday afternoon.
Police said the shooting happened around 1:50 p.m. at the Lafayette Gardens mobile home park at the intersection of Avalon Avenue and South Boulder Road, which is about 1 1/2 miles east of Highway 287. The victim was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.
Several Boulder Valley School District (BVSD) schools were placed on secure lockout due to the search. The schools on lockout were:
- Sanchez Elementary School
- Justice High School
- Peak to Peak Charter School
A BVSD spokesperson said students were being held at the schools at the request of police. Around 3:30 p.m., the lockout was lifted and students were released.
Police said Wednesday that they believe the shooting was targeted, and there is no danger to the public.
Police are asking residents in the area of South Boulder Road, east of Public Road and south of Baseline Road, to review home security video systems and share any footage that may have captured the suspect.
Anyone with information that may help the investigation is asked to call the Lafayette Police Department at 303-665-5571.
