Authorities conduct 'high-risk' traffic stop near Castle Rock

A suspect allegedly fired a weapon from their vehicle in possible road rage incident

Posted

Law enforcement officers from the Douglas County Sheriff's Office, the Castle Rock Police Department and the Colorado State Patrol conducted what the sheriff's office called “a high-risk stop” on I-25 north of Castle Rock on Feb. 5 in which a suspect allegedly fired a weapon from his vehicle.

No one was injured and there was no danger to the public, the sheriff's office said on Twitter shortly after 6 p.m. An investigation was underway.

Spokesman Jose Uribe for the Douglas County Sheriff's Office said they believe the incident occurred between 5:30 and 5:45 p.m. and may be a case of road rage.

Law enforcement units sought the suspect after dispatchers received a report that someone fired a weapon from their vehicle, Uribe said.

The suspect has been apprehended. Authorities do not know what he was firing at, Uribe said. No other information was available as of approximately 6:30 p.m.
