GOLDEN — A sheriff’s deputy shot and killed a man who pulled a gun during an encounter northwest of Denver.
The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office says deputies were responding to a report of a man standing next to a motorcycle waving a gun near the Willis Case Golf Course at about noon Thursday. No one was near the motorcycle when authorities arrived, but a man matching the suspect’s description approached the scene while deputies were investigating.
The suspect, a 33-year-old man, was shot when he pulled a handgun from his waistband and pointed it at a deputy. No one else was injured.
The motorcycle was reported stolen out of Westminster in February. No other information was released.
