Glendale police shoot man in pickup truck Saturday night

Glendale police officers shot a man Saturday night after they approached a pickup truck that was stopped in traffic on South Colorado Boulevard.

The incident happened in the 300 block of South Colorado Boulevard near East Alameda Avenue, on the border between Glendale and Denver but just inside Denver city limits, Denver police Cmdr. Mark Chuck said in a Saturday night briefing.

The man was “unresponsive” in a pickup truck that was stopped in the road in the northbound lanes when officers approached him, Chuck said.

As Glendale officers “made that contact, at some point, a shooting did occur,” Chuck said. He gave no details as to what led the officers to fire and said he did not know whether the man was armed.

After police fired shots, the man drove the truck backwards and struck an unmarked police vehicle that was behind the truck. He was then taken into custody and taken to a hospital for treatment. The officer who was in the unmarked police vehicle was also treated for injuries.

Chuck did not know their conditions Saturday.

Denver police are investigating the shooting, which did not involve any Denver officers.
