On July 19, 2021, at approximately 10:41 a.m., Fort Collins Police responded to the report of a shooting in the 2400 block of South College Avenue. Officers arrived on scene at around 10:45 a.m. and discovered a deceased person outside. Detectives are investigating the death as a homicide.

The Larimer County Coroner’s office will release the victim’s identity along with the official cause and manner of death at a later time pending notification of next of kin.

It is unknown at this time if the suspect was known to the victim at the time of the shooting. Investigators are also looking into whether this shooting is connected to a homicide which occurred on July 5, 2021. In both cases the victims were experiencing homelessness.

Detectives with the Fort Collins Police Department are seeking the publics help with identifying a suspect in this case. The suspect is described as a male, 5’9” with a thin build. The suspect was further described as having a shaved head and burn scaring on his face. The suspect was last seen driving a stolen Silver 2014 Honda CRV with Missouri license plate TE5Y1P (images of suspect and vehicle attached). If you observe this subject or vehicle do not approach and call 911 immediately.

“What makes this incident even more disturbing is the brazen nature of the attack” said Fort Collins Police Chief Swoboda. “This violent act occurred in broad daylight, along a major corridor with multiple people around. We need the public’s help in identifying this killer so we can remove him from the streets to prevent him from possibly hurting anyone else.”

Anyone with information about the suspect or either of these two crimes is asked to contact the FCPS Tip Line at 970-416-2825 or tipsline@fcgov.com. People who wish to remain anonymous can also contact Crime Stoppers of Larimer County at (970) 221-6868. Anyone who provides information leading to the identification and arrest of a suspect in this case may be eligible for a cash reward.
