LARIMER COUNTY, Colo. — A 43-year-old man died following a disturbance call at a Larimer County hotel Wednesday, the Larimer County Sheriff's Office (LCSO) said Thursday.

Deputies said the man was attacking a 34-year-old woman. At least five people who witnessed the attack came to the defense of the woman and were able to subdue her attacker, deputies said.
When deputies arrived, they found the man and the woman suffering from life-threatening injuries, LCSO said. The man and woman were taken to a hospital for treatment of their injuries. Another person was also injured and treated at the scene by medical personnel, according to LCSO.
The man, said to be a transient, was pronounced dead a short time later at the hospital, LCSO said. The woman was later transferred to a Denver-area hospital for further treatment of her injuries, according to deputies.
The identities of the people involved have not been released by the sheriff's or coroner's offices.
Larimer County deputies said they are working with the coroner's office to "examine forensic evidence at the scene." LCSO added they will release more information when it becomes available.
