GREELEY, Colo. — The man who was shot and killed during a confrontation with Greeley Police early Wednesday morning has been identified.

Greeley Police officers contacted a suspect inside of a suspicious vehicle at 1:13 a.m. in the 100 block of 14th Avenue, according to the 19th judicial Critical Incident Response Team which is investigating the incident.

An officer noticed two people inside of the vehicle. The man in the driver's seat was 30-year-old Ramiro Carrasco, according to a news release sent out Wednesday.

Officers provided first aid before Carrasco was transported to a nearby hospital, where he later died.

Police said there is body camera footage of the shooting that may be released by Greeley Police at the conclusion of the investigation by the 19th Judicial Critical Incident Response Team.
