Denver police shot and killed a suspect who they say was involved in a carjacking and shooting in Westminster Friday morning.
Bruce Allee, 31, was shot by Denver police in a shopping center parking lot near the intersection of East 88th Avenue and Corona Street in Thornton Friday afternoon. No officers were injured. The Denver Channel reported.
The circumstances behind the Thornton shooting are not yet known. It’s not clear what agency was involved in the shooting at this time.
Authorities have been searching for the fugitive following the Westminster carjacking.
Denver police said Allee entered a garage in the 13200 block of Wyandot Street before 7:30 a.m. and attempted to steal a car that was parked inside.
Allee shot and wounded a man who tried to stop the carjacking, according to police. The victim’s wife and the couple’s 9-year-old daughter were in the garage at the time of the incident but escaped without injury.
The man was listed in stable condition at a nearby hospital.
After the shooting, the suspect took off with the couple’s car but it was later recovered near 70th Avenue and Broadway, authorities said.
Allee was on a supervised release program and was required to wear a GPS-linked ankle monitor as a condition of his bond when he cut off his ankle monitor and disappeared about two months ago.
