Witnesses sought in incident involving hit-and-run and gunfire in Douglas County

The 18th Judicial District’s Critical Incident Response Team is investigating an incident involving gunfire and a vehicle that crashed into construction equipment in Douglas County.

At about 8 p.m. May 3, a vehicle collided with construction equipment on C-470 near Quebec Street, according to a news release sent by the Colorado State Patrol on Wednesday. As the driver attempted to flee the scene, shots were fired, and the vehicle was able to get away.

Colorado State Patrol officials would not say whether the suspect or state troopers fired the shots.

Critical incident response teams typically investigate officer-involved shootings. They also investigate incidents at the request of member agencies, and in this case, Colorado State Patrol requested the investigation, said Vikki Migoya, spokeswoman for the 18th Judicial District Attorney’s Office.

Colorado State Patrol is still looking for the suspect car, described as a white, boxy vehicle, with a steering wheel on the right side. The model year is between 1990 and 2005. It’s expected to have minor to moderate damage in the front.

Because the Critical Incident Response Team investigation is ongoing, CSP said it would not release further information about the incident.

The agency is anyone with information about the incident to call CSP at 303-239-4501 and use case number 1C191515.
