EL PASO COUNTY, Colo. — The identity of a suspect involved in a shooting with officers in Security-Widefield has been confirmed by the El Paso County Coroner.

The coroner identified the suspect as 51-year-old, Christopher Fraijo.

The incident occurred on Jan. 27. when the CSPD were alerted to a shooting involving Fraijo, the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office, and the Fountain Police Department.

According to the CSPD, around 12:30 a.m. they received a call from the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office Communications Center about an adult male walking around with a firearm on Security Boulevard.
