PUEBLO, Colo. (KRDO) -- Pueblo police say there has been an officer-involved shooting on Tuesday evening.

Captain Kenny Rider says at about 5:30 p.m., a man approached a house on the 1100 block of Bragdon Avenue. The man asked residents of a home if they had seen the police. When the residents said "no," they say the man pulled out a handgun and cocked it.

The witnesses called 911 immediately and an officer arrived shortly after in their patrol car. Rider says the man, identified Wednesday by the Pueblo County Coroner as 43-year-old Kevin Pulido, then aimed his gun at the officer. More patrol cars arrived shortly after and police say Pulido aimed the gun at several officers.

Pueblo PD says three officers were involved in the shooting of the suspect, yet it's unclear whether Pulido fired any rounds at police.

Police closed off the intersection of Jackson Street and W. Mesa Avenue through the night due to the investigation.

Pulido did not have any active warrants for his arrest, but he did have a criminal history, police said.

In response to the state recently passing the new police accountability bill, Captain Rider said he doesn't believe the officers involved were in violation of the use of force clauses.
