GREELEY, Colo. (AP) - A man shot by Greeley police has died at a hospital.

The Greeley Tribune reports that 45-year-old Thomas Junior Garcia was shot Tuesday by police, and was identified the next day by the Weld County Coroner’s Office.

Police had been responding to a suspicious vehicle call when officers tried talking to Garcia, who then fled on foot.

Police say Garcia displayed a knife to officers and after an unsuccessful attempt to subdue him with a stun gun, an officer fired their weapon.

The officers involved in the shooting have been placed on administrative leave pending the Critical Incident Response Team’s investigation.
