LOVELAND, Colo. (CBS4) – The Loveland Police Department on Thursday released police dash cam footage of an officer-involved shooting that left one person dead last month.
Police were trying to pull over Stephen Rich near near Namaqua Park west of Interstate 25.
They say the 48-year-old man jumped off his motorcycle and started firing at officers. They fired back and shot him several times.
“This motorist pulled out a handgun, raised it up while the officers were giving commands to stop. The subject then discharged at least one bullet at that time and in less than two seconds a firefight occurred with our two officers and 14 rounds were exchanged,” said Loveland Police Chief Robert Ticer.
Rich died after being taken to the hospital.
