BOULDER COUNTY, Colo. – An armed man was shot and killed by authorities in Boulder County after police were called to assist a motorist Sunday.

According to the Colorado State Patrol, CSP were called to Highway 36 and McCaslin Blvd at around 11:40 a.m. and once on the scene a trooper noticed bullet holes in the window of a vehicle.

The CSP said the trooper called for backup and Boulder County deputies eventually were able to “talk the individual out of the vehicle and he put a firearm down on the car,” a release stated.

At some point the man allegedly grabbed the firearm and “pointed it at law enforcement”, said the release.

According to CSP, “shots were fired” and the man died at the scene. Investigators said no officers were injured but a “piece of one law enforcement member’s equipment was struck,” according to the release.

It was not clear as to the sequence of the shots nor which member of law enforcement fired their weapons.

The man killed by police was identified by the Boulder County Coroner Wednesday as 50-year-old Efren Inda.
