Police seek suspect who pointed gun at Port of Entry officer


FORT COLLINS, Colo. — A Port of Entry officer in Fort Collins had a close call Sunday morning when a man pointed a gun at him and pulled the trigger.

The weapon failed to fire, the Fort Collins Police Department said.

The incident occurred at 7:41 a.m. at the southbound Port of Entry in Fort Collins, police said.

The suspect is described as a light-skinned black or Hispanic male in his early to mid-30s, 5’7″ to 5’9″ tall, with short black hair, a mustache, and a medium build. The suspect was last seen wearing a light-colored short-sleeved shirt, blue jeans, and wraparound sunglasses.

The suspect allegedly entered the POE office, pointed a firearm of unknown description at a POE officer, and pulled the trigger. The firearm did not discharge, police said.

The suspect then climbed into a very dirty white semi-tractor towing a white box trailer and continued southbound on Interstate 25.

The semi-tractor is reported to have the numbers “4177” behind the passenger-side door. The numbers may be part of a larger number.
