The shooting happened in the southbound lanes of I-25 near Mulberry Street.

LARIMER COUNTY, Colo. — A man was shot after leading Larimer County Sheriff’s deputies on a pursuit Monday afternoon, according to the sheriff’s office. The pursuit began in the town of Wellington and ended nearly 10 miles away on Interstate 25 near Mulberry Street, according to the sheriff’s office.

The investigation into the shooting forced the closure of the southbound lanes of I-25 at Mountain Vista Drive, the sheriff’s office said. The interstate reopened around 8:30 p.m. Monday.

The incident began just after 2 p.m. after deputies were called to a suspicious man at the Family Dollar store located on 6th Street near Roosevelt Avenue in Wellington, according to a release from the sheriff’s office.

When deputies arrived, the man sped off in a pickup truck and the pursuit was initiated, the release states. The pursuit went south on I-25 and ended near Mulberry Street just outside the Fort Collins city limits, deputies said.

The 8th Judicial Critical Incident Response Team will be investigating the incident, the sheriff’s office said.
