When police arrived on scene, they directed the man to drop the weapon. When he refused to do so, police and killed him.


“He [the suspect] was not following commands, and so at some point, we did have to neutralize him,” CU-B Police Department official Scott Pribble said. “We don’t know anything yet other than the suspect is dead. Now we will turn it ocver to the Boulder County investigative team to continue the investigation.”


At 9:40 a.m., police stated the campus was safe again and business would continue as usual.
