Authorities identify man fatally shot by Fort Collins police

FORT COLLINS — The Larimer County Coroner’s Office has identified the man fatally shot by a Fort Collins police officer.

The Coloradoan reports that 26-year-old George Randall Newman was killed on Sunday after being shot twice at a motel. Police were responding to a call from a man who said he heard a loud noise and then saw a hole appear in the ceiling above him at the motel.

Investigators say officers were attempting to make contact with the suspect when he opened the door wielding a firearm and was shot by the officer.

The officer who fired his weapon has not yet been identified.

David Moore, Larimer County’s public information officer, said the incident was captured on a body camera, but the video won’t be released until investigation and reviews complete.
