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.

This article will be updated as more information is released.

  1. Thank you Pueblo PD. Cleaning up the streets, one at a time. This is why crime in Pueblo is down 20%.

  2. He obviously was not a black man or there would be rioting in the street, whether he was guilty of a crime or not.

  3. Sounds like a suicide by cop. Why would you pull a gun, ask if they had seen police and then just stand around and do nothing?

    1. that sucks for the officers if this was the mans intent… I do love how KRDO has to point out they don’t know if they suspect shot at police…. does that matter if you point a gun at them? I guess KRDO has fallen to the dark side of liberalism

  4. Well, giving that they charge an officer in Atlanta with murder after the thug fought with him and took his taser. I doubt that the thug, being drunk, knew that it was a taser and fired it at the officer.

  5. A big thanks to the Pueblo PD for cleaning up the streets. Sad that the officers had to do this and live with it, but so glad they were not hurt.

  6. so 3 pigs with guns murdered a man for having a gun on him and acting a bit crazy…although he didnt likely even use his weapon. Im rw
    Eady for war, us vs all you face mask wearing, blue line loving fags. When civil war happens im gonna fuq you losers up
