Westminster officers tried to contact the man, who then fired a handgun at them, according to DPD. Three of the four WPD officers who were at the scene returned fire, DPD said, discharging a total of 27 rounds. The suspect was struck multiple times, according to Denver police.
DPD said the officers involved rendered aid until paramedics arrived and took the suspect to the hospital, where he died. He was identified as 37-year-old Drew Lucero by the coroner. An autopsy was performed and he died from multiple gunshot wounds, the coroner's office said.
No officers were injured, according to DPD.
DPD said that because the incident took place in Denver, the investigation will be conducted according to Denver's officer-involved shooting protocol. The investigation is being conducted by a multi-agency investigative team comprised of members of the Denver and Aurora police departments, as well as the Denver District Attorney's Office.
The Denver District Attorney's Office will then determine whether the actions of the WPD officers were in compliance with state law, according to a release from DPD.
Anyone with information about the case is asked to call Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-7867.
