Brighton police Friday night arrested a man suspected of shooting a Littleton police officer earlier in the week.
Rigoberto “Rigo” Valles Dominguez was taken into custody at about 10:40 p.m. after what authorities described as a “barricade” situation.
There were no injuries to officers or the suspect, according to a Brighton Police Department department tweet.
The incident started at about 3:45 p.m. in the area of 27th Avenue and Bromley Lane, just east of Observatory Park.
During a mid-evening briefing, Brighton Police Department Deputy Chief Matt Domenico said police received a tip that Dominguez was in a home in the 1100 block of South 27th Avenue. Domenico wasn’t at liberty to say how police learned that Dominguez was in the area.
