November 19, 2019

GREELEY, Colo. (AP) — A man killed in an exchange of gunfire with police in Greeley last week has been identified as 40-year-old Russel D. Cooley.

The Greeley Tribune reports Cooley was identified Monday as the man found dead by police inside a home where he had run into following a high-speed chase and shoot-out with Greeley police and the Weld County Sheriff’s Office.

A Greeley police officer was shot and wounded and another suspect also was wounded in the incident last Thursday.

Sheriff’s deputy Julio Sherman says police aren’t yet ready to release the name of the second person involved in the incident. Sherman did say the second person is a woman who is being treated as a person of interest.

No other information was released Monday, and the incident remained under investigation.
