LOVELAND — A Loveland resident wanted in connection with an earlier shooting of a police officer turned himself in to Fort Collins police on Tuesday.
Just before 3:30 p.m., Cody Alan Powell, a 23-year-old Loveland resident, called the Fort Collins Police Department and asked to turn himself in. Fort Collins police officers transported Powell to the Fort Collins Police Department. At 4:41 p.m., Powell was brought to the Loveland Police Department, according to a Loveland police news release.
From there, Powell was taken to Larimer County Jail, where he was booked for investigation of attempted first-degree murder of a peace officer, a class 2 felony, and first-degree assault, a class 3 felony, the release stated.
Powell is expected in Larimer District Court today for an arraignment.
Police say officer Garret Osilka was wounded Sunday during a traffic stop, and he is expected to survive.
The 36-year-old officer returned fire, according to police. It’s not known if a suspect was hit, but hospitals had been told to be on the lookout for someone with a gunshot wound.
“On behalf of Officer Garrett Osilka and his beautiful family, I am very pleased to be at this juncture in the long process of obtaining a true and just disposition in the case,” Loveland Police Chief Luke Hecker said in the news release. “I am fiercely proud of the tireless effort of the men and women of the Loveland Police Department over the last few days to investigate this case around the clock and uncover meaningful facts.”
The investigation is ongoing.
