An investigation originating with the Fountain Police Department led to a standoff in eastern El Paso County on April 28. Ultimately, the home in which the suspect was hiding caught fire, and the suspect was found dead.
The suspect reportedly threatened a family member and a “former significant other” on April 27. FPD officers attempted to make contact during a traffic stop, but the suspect fled.
The next day, two El Paso County Sheriff’s Office deputies went to a home on Boone Road to contact the suspect, at which time he shot through the home at deputies but missed.
