GREELEY, Colorado – The officer involved in the fatal shooting of a suspect in February has been cleared in the incident, according to District Attorney Michael J. Rourke.
The DA’s office said the Greeley Police officer, who has not been named, was justified in using lethal force against 30-year-old Ramiro Carrasco.
The Greeley Police officer was allegedly conducting crime suppression patrol in the area of the Island Grove Apartments located at 119 14th Ave.
That’s when the officer located a suspicious vehicle parked in the northeast corner of the parking lot. The summary says the officer knew this area to be a high crime area, specifically involving narcotics and a dumping ground for stolen vehicles.
