Subject:  Greeley Police Investigating an Officer Involved Shooting
 
At approximately 1:30 p.m., Greeley Police Officers were called to 609 8th Ave, an apartment building, on a report of an individual with warrants at this location.  Officers attempted to contact the party inside apartment number 304.  The party was uncooperative with officers, refusing to come out, at which time officers reported hearing shots fired from inside.  Officers confirmed there were several people in the apartment with the suspect, as he made continual threats toward officers.
 
At approximately 4:20 p.m. officers shot the suspect who was immediately transported to North Colorado Medical Center with what appeared to be none life threatening injuries.  His condition is unknown at this time.  The investigation is ongoing at this time, and further details will most likely be unavailable until sometime in the morning.
