FORT COLLINS — Fort Collins police are seeking the public's help to identify three suspects in a non-fatal shooting Monday night.
Dispatch received a report about 9:45 p.m. Monday of a shooting at an apartment complex near West Plum Street and South Taft Hill Road in Fort Collins, according to a release from Fort Collins police. A 23-year-old man was taken to a nearby hospital, but his injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.
When he went to answer a knock at the door of his apartment, the victim met with three unknown males who attempted to force their way in. Despite the victim securing the door, the suspects kicked the door in and fired weapons, striking the victim, according to the release. The suspects then fled the area without taking anything from the home. No one else was injured.
The three suspects were described as about 5-foot-10. One suspect was described as having a "chubbier" build, wearing a white shirt and a fade hair cut. The second was wearing dark clothing and a gray cap. The third suspect was seen wearing dark clothing and either a black hoodie or a Nike cap with a red swoosh. A white vehicle, possibly a Nissan or Kia, with plastic silver or chrome-style rims may have been associated with the suspects, according to the release.
Police are asking that anyone with information about this incident or the possible identity of the suspects is asked to contact Detective Jason Shutters at (970) 416-2177. People may also contact Crime Stoppers of Larimer County at (970) 221-6868 or http://www.stopcriminals.org.
