Olde Town Arvada officer-involved shooting investigation complete

The Colorado First Judicial District Critical Incident Response Team (CIRT) has completed its investigation into June’s officer-involved shooting in Olde Town Arvada and presented its findings to the First Judicial District Attorney’s Office (Gilpin/Jefferson) Thursday.
 
Elected District Attorney Alexis King and a team of prosecutors will conduct a thorough review of the investigation and all the evidence collected by the CIRT. Following the review, DA King will determine whether or not charges will be filed against the officer involved and announce that decision at a press conference.
 
The CIRT investigation into the shooting involving an officer from the Arvada Police Department was led by the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office with assistance from other First Judicial District law enforcement agencies and investigators in the First Judicial District Attorney’s Office. No officers from the Arvada Police Department performed critical duties related to the investigation.
 
As with any ongoing matter, and pursuant to Rules 3.6 and 3.8(f) of the Colorado Rules of Professional Conduct – a set of attorney regulations adopted by the Colorado Supreme Court – the District Attorney’s Office will not make any additional statements at this time.
