LARIMER COUNTY, Colo. — A suspect died in a shooting involving a Larimer County deputy early Monday.

At 12:18 a.m. Monday, a deputy with the Larimer County Sheriff's Office attempted to stop a driver near Highway 56 and Interstate 25 in Berthoud, but he did not pull over and instead, fled northbound on I-25, according to the Larimer County Sheriff's Office.

After about nine miles on the interstate, the driver exited at E. Crossroads Boulevard and then continued east. A PIT (Precision Immobilization Technique) maneuver, set up by a deputy, eventually stopped him near Centerra Parkway, the sheriff's office said.
