COLORADO – Within a week, law enforcement officers across Colorado have been involved in 9 shootings, including two more Wednesday. Luckily, no officers or deputies have been injured. At least three people have died, however.

Early Wednesday morning in Englewood, a police officer shot a 26 year old woman while investigating a stolen car. At last report, the woman was in critical condition, a 35 year old man was also taken in to custody. Police were called to a parking garage on the report of a stolen vehicle, and found the two people inside. Police are not saying what happened prior to shots being fired. The shooting remains under investigation. The names of the suspects involved have not been released.

Later Wednesday, Fort Lupton officers were responding to a disturbance call when the shooting happened. It’s still unclear what led up to the shooting, or the extent of injuries. We are awaiting updates from the Weld County Sheriff.
