Larimer County deputy shoots, kills man who approached with knife, police say

The shooting happened around 10:15 p.m. Friday in Johnstown. The driver had been speeding and failed to pull over, police said.

LARIMER COUNTY, Colo — A man has died of his injuries after he was shot by a Larimer County sheriff's deputy after a chase Friday night, according to Fort Collins police.

Police said around 10:15 p.m. Friday, Larimer County deputies tried to pull over the driver of a 2005 Honda Pilot who was speeding in the 2800-block of SE Frontage Road in Johnstown. The driver failed to stop, so deputies performed a PIT maneuver, police said. The SUV went off the road and came to a stop. 

The driver got out of the SUV, failed to follow commands, and approached deputies with a knife, police said. One deputy fired their duty weapon, hitting the man. 

The man was taken to the hospital, where he later died. His name has not yet been released. 

Police said the passenger in the SUV, a woman, was not injured. 

The Eighth Judicial District Critical Incident Response Team was activated and the Loveland Police Department will be leading this investigation.
