A suspect is dead after Greeley Police shot him after witnessing him commit multiple crimes.
It all started just before 10 p.m. when a woman called police, saying she had two friends being held at gunpoint at Chippers Classic Lanes in the 2400 block of Eighth Avenue in Greeley. The suspect had told her to go to the ATM and get $200 or else he'd shoot her friends.
Greeley Police arrived on the scene, and the suspect took off in a white Pontiac G6, pointing a sawed-off shotgun at police.
The police did not chase him but instead set up a perimeter. He was described as a black man wearing a white hoodie with a sawed-off shotgun and a silver-plated handgun.
Around 11:30 p.m., officers spotted the same vehicle in the 1400 block of Sixth Avenue. Officers asked the man to get out of the vehicle, but he fled the scene again. He attempted to run the officers over and hit a garage in the process.
This time, officers chased the driver to Evans. The man got into a wreck around Highway 85 and 31st Street. The suspect jumped out of the sedan with a handgun and tried to carjack a white Chevy sedan near the intersection. After forcing a woman and a man from the sedan, the suspect got into the Chevy.
Officers confronted the suspect and shot him. The suspect was pronounced dead at the scene. He is not being identified yet.
During the carjacking of the Chevy sedan, a small tan/brown Pomeranian dog belonging to the owner of the sedan was lost. Animals Control officers were able to locate little Cooper.
