Fort Collins police shoot and injure suspect, investigation ongoing

Fort Collins police shot and injured a suspect Friday afternoon, officials said on Twitter.

Just before 2 p.m., Fort Collins Police Department officials tweeted that the agency would investigate the shooting at an apartment complex in the 1200 block of East Stuart Street.

That location is just a few blocks west of Edora Park. By the time department officials acknowledged the shooting on social media they said there was no “ongoing threat” to the community.

Shortly after 2 p.m., department officials tweeted again that the suspect had been taken to a local hospital for their injuries and that no officers had been injured in the shooting. The department’s tweets offered no insight into the nature of the person’s injuries or the suspected crime.

Police will likely remain in the area for several hours Friday afternoon as investigators process the scene, department officials tweeted.

Fort Collins police representatives did not immediately return  messages from The Denver Post seeking comment. Additional information was not immediately available.
