Deputies identify man shot in officer-involved shooting

Posted: Updated:

The Fremont County Sheriff's Office released the name of the person shot by a deputy Sunday night near Coaldale, which shut down Highway 50 for hours.

Deputies said 34-year-old Robert Lee Fay from Montrose was shot by a deputy after a brief chase on Highway 50 Sunday evening.

Deputies said they responded to a report of an RV on fire off of Highway 50 a little before 5 p.m. Sunday afternoon. Police said the fire was suspicious and they identified a person of interest, later identified as Fay, who left the scene in a stolen truck.

Deputies said they tracked the man using a GPS device, who traveled east on Highway 50 to the top of 8 Mile Hill west of Canon City. When deputies tried to detain the man, it "resulted in an officer-involved shooting."

The sheriff's office said he was detained without further incident and was eventually released from the hospital with minor injuries. He is now in the Fremont County jail. 

The names of the deputies involved in the chase and the shooting were not released.

Deputies did not say if Fay was armed and did not release any other details about what led up to the shooting. Deputies said charges against Fay are "pending."

The Colorado Bureau of Investigation is currently investigating the incident.

Colorado State Patrol closed Highway 50 in both directions, 8 miles west of Cañon City after the shooting. The road reopened at 4:00 a.m.
