Police Investigate Shooting at 4701 Strauss Cabin Road

On August 22, 2020, at 11:20 PM, Fort Collins 911 received a call regarding a welfare check for a resident in the area who was experiencing a mental health crisis. Officers responded and attempted to assist the male and provide him resources, but he refused police assistance.

On August 23, at 1:13 AM, Fort Collins 911 received a call regarding a disturbance in the same area where neighbors were now reporting the same male was causing a disturbance.

The male broke into a neighbor’s residence. The resident and other occupants retreated into another room further into the apartment. The resident discharged his firearm, striking the suspect. The resident has been cooperative with police.

The suspect was transported to Medical Center of the Rockies for his injuries where he was later pronounced deceased. The Larimer County Coroner’s Office will release the cause and manner of death, as well as the man’s identity, pending notification of kin.

There are no outstanding suspects, and there is no ongoing threat to the public. In conjunction with the Larimer County District Attorney’s Office, Detectives are working to determine if any charges will be filed.

Detectives are still actively investigating the case. Anyone with information regarding this incident, who has not already spoken to police, should contact Detective Dollie Knab at 970-416-2195. People can also contact Crime Stoppers of Larimer County at 970-221-6868 or www.stopcriminals.org. Callers may remain anonymous.
