The shooting happened Wednesday night near 2nd Street and Welch Avenue in Berthoud.

BERTHOUD, Colo. — The 8th Judicial District Critical Incident Response Team (CIRT) and the Loveland Police Department (LPD) are investigating a deputy-involved shooting that took place Wednesday night in Berthoud.

At about 10:10 p.m., deputies from the Larimer County Sheriff's Office (LCSO) responded to a report of a suspected drunk driver near 2nd Street and Welch Avenue, according to a release from LCSO.

Ten minutes later, the suspect and deputies "exchanged gunfire" at that location, LCSO said.

The suspect was identified by LCSO as 52-year-old Erik Daniel Locker.

Locker was treated at Medical Center of the Rockies for injuries that were not life-threatening and transported to Larimer County Jail, according to the sheriff's office.

None of the deputies involved were injured. LCSO did not say what led up to the exchange of gunfire between deputies and Locker.

  • Attempted first-degree murder
  • Four counts of menacing
  • Violation of bail bond condition
  • Prohibited use of a weapon
  • Driving under the influence
