Person Shoots At Westminster Police

WESTMINSTER, Colo. (CBS) – Friday morning Westminster police searched for a person who shot at police officers. It happened around 10:30 p.m. on Thursday at the Toscana Apartments at 84th and Sheridan.

Police said a Cadillac that crashed in a ditch behind the apartments may have been carrying the people responsible for the shooting. One neighbor said he heard the gunshots.

“This is pretty frightening. There’s a lot of kids that live around here and people out walking their dogs. That’s not good,” said neighbor Tim Hammer.

Police worked late into the night interviewing some 25 witnesses.

Parts of Sheridan were closed for a little more than an hour Thursday night as police searched for the shooter.

No one was hit by any of the gunfire.
