BRIGHTON, Colo. (CBS4) – Littleton police confirm the man barricaded in a RV home in Brighton is Rigoberto Valles Dominguez. Police alerted the public to the barricade situation at around 7:30 p.m. on Friday.
Valles Dominguez is accused of shooting and seriously wounding a Littleton police officer.
Officer David Snook was shot late Monday night after responding to a call for shots being fired from a car near Bannock and Powers. Another officer was also injured in the situation, but was not shot by the suspect.
Littleton police believe he was involved in a carjacking a few blocks away and several hours after the shooting. The vehicle taken is a sand grey 2002 Ford Explorer with Colorado license plate AGM-D94 and the vehicle should have a smashed driver’s side window.
Snook was seriously injured after being shot in the torso, arm and leg and continues to recover in the hospital.
Brighton police shut down 27th Avenue between Eagle Boulevard and Bromley Lane. Officials say negotiators are trying to make contact.
BPD officials say they were given a tip about Valles Dominguez possibly living in an RV home in Brighton at around 3:45 p.m. Officers responded and that’s when, officials say, the suspect barricaded himself.
It is not clear if Valles Dominguez has anyone with him or if there are injuries. Police say they are trying to resolve the situation peacefully.
