One presumed suspect was found dead last week after an hours-long standoff that eventually saw an Arapahoe County SWAT team enter a home in the 1600 block of East Otero Avenue.
On Nov. 21 at about 7:30 a.m., the county sheriff’s office was called to help Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Task Force arrest a man wanted for attempted homicide, who reportedly had a previous history with firearms, explosives and violent assaults.
The SWAT team determined the suspect was alone and barricaded inside, but attempts to contact him or force him out were unsuccessful. When deputies were able to access the home at about 2:20 p.m., they found a dead man, believed to be the suspect inside.
An autopsy on the presumed suspect was pending.
The sheriff’s office worked closely with Cherry Creek Schools to coordinate communication to parents whose students may have been affected by busing changes due to road closures. A reverse callback was used to ask area residents to stay inside.
