Suspected Road Rage Shooting in Denver Revealed as Planned Robbery Attempt, Say Investigators

A suspected road rage shooting in Denver on Thursday is now believed to have been part of a planned robbery attempt, according to investigators from the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office. Additional evidence has led to a new narrative, shedding light on the cause of the violent incident between two vehicles.

The incident occurred around 4:50 p.m. on Thursday near Owl Canyon Road and U.S. 287 in Denver. The sheriff’s office stated that an SUV with multiple passengers pulled in front of the victim vehicle, a Kia Sedona van, forcing it to stop. Masked suspects from the SUV then fired shots at the van. The van driver attempted to flee but lost control of the vehicle, resulting in a crash and subsequent fire.

Fortunately, none of the eight occupants in the van were hit by gunfire. However, they sustained non-life-threatening injuries from the crash and were transported to a hospital for treatment.

The suspects fled the scene in their SUV before first responders arrived. A responding ambulance also caught fire, but the engine fire was unrelated to the van fire, and no injuries were reported.

The cause of the incident is currently under investigation. The sheriff’s office is seeking information, photos, and videos from witnesses or drivers near the scene. Anyone with relevant information can contact Investigator Ryan Gebhardt at 970-498-5586 or submit an anonymous tip via Crime Stoppers of Larimer County at 970-221-6868 or www.stopcriminals.org.
