WELD COUNTY, Colo. (KRDO) - A confrontation with law enforcement ended with a suspect being shot and killed by police Saturday morning, in a subdivision northeast of Fort Lupton.
The Weld County Sheriff's Office said Law enforcement agencies responded to a 911 call to a subdivision called Aristocrat Ranchettes, just northeast of Fort Lupton, about 8:30 Saturday morning.
