Contact Information

On October 19, 2017 at 1:57 a.m., Fort Collins Police responded to a call of multiple shots fired near 720 City Park Ave. When officers arrived, they discovered four people with gunshot wounds, one of whom is believed to be the suspect.

Three of the four people died as a result of their injuries. The Larimer County Coroner identified the victims as Savannah McNealy, 22, and Tristian Kemp, 26. The suspect has been identified as Michael Zamora, 30. A fourth female was injured in the shooting and was transported to Medical Center of the Rockies for treatment. Out of respect for her privacy, her identity will not be released.

Through the course of the investigation, detectives learned that the four people had been out socializing together with a larger group on the evening of October 18. The three victims took a rideshare back to 720 City Park Avenue in the early hours of October 19. A short time after they arrived at the apartment complex, investigators believe Zamora shot the victims and ultimately himself. A handgun and two rifles registered to Zamora were recovered at the scene.

This case is still under active investigation, and a motive has not been determined. Anyone with information about this incident, who has not already spoken to police, should contact Detective Tessa Jakobsson at 970-221-6575 or Crime Stoppers of Larimer County at 970-221-6868.
