GREELEY, Colo. (AP) — Police in northern Colorado have released the identity of a man shot and killed by officers during a confrontation.
The Weld County Sheriff’s Office says a coroner identified the man as 26-year-old Jose Angel Aguero Jr. of Greeley.
The office previously said that a man was seen stealing a car in Greeley on Thursday morning and later crashed into a ditch. Police have said the man ran when Greeley police officers confronted him.
The officers fired less-lethal bean bag rounds at him. Those did not work, and the officers fatally shot him when he allegedly brandished a handgun.
