VIDEO: Fleeing Fugitive Pulls Gun On Cops Who Quickly Eliminate The Threat


Newly released body-cam video show a man wanted on an arrested warrant pull a gun on police as they attempted to apprehend him.

Thirty-three-year-old Lucas Antonio Salas died in an exchange of gunfire on a golf course in Thornton, Colorado.

The Denver Post reports:

"Officers who killed a man in an exchange of gunfire on a golf course in Thornton were justified in their use of deadly force, according to an investigative review...
Officers chased down Salas, yelling commands for him to stop, according to the review. When they got close Salas drew a gun and fired. Thornton officer Mikal Timm and Northglenn officer Charles Festi “returned fire,” striking Salas. He was taken to a nearby hospital and pronounced dead…
A drug screen of Salas, as part of the investigation, was positive for amphetamines and fentanyl, according to the review letter.
“Based on the evidence presented and the applicable Colorado law, there is no basis for charging the involved officers in this incident, nor would there be a reasonable likelihood of success of proving the elements of any crime as it relates to the law enforcement officers’ involvement in this incident,” the letter said. “Therefore, there will be no criminal charges filed against the officers involved in this incident.”
