The coroner has identified the person who was shot and killed by police as Christopher Tavares of Colorado Springs. He was 21 years old. The coroner says Tavares died from a gunshot wound to the chest.
The shooting happened overnight near the intersection of Highway 50 and N. Elizabeth St. in Pueblo.
Pueblo police say Tavares fit the description of a man suspected of shooting at police on Craig St. earlier in the night.
Police say the officer tried to stop Tavares and he did not comply.
