stigators developed what they believe to be a description of a vehicle based on several interviews and canvasses during this investigation.

A press release from Larimer County Sheriff’s Office spokesman David Moore stated that a fourth person recently reported to the task force being shot at the night of June 3 in the area of Denver Avenue and East Eisenhower Boulevard in Loveland, approximately two miles from East 1st Street and St. Louis Avenue where William Connole was killed by a gunshot to the chest during the late evening hours that same night. The other person who was shot at wasn’t injured, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

While the shooting of a Milliken woman on Interstate 25 in Larimer County on April 22 and the shooting of Mr. John Jacoby on May 18 in Windsor have been linked by evidence, law enforcement said that there isn’t a direct link between those two incidents and the two incidents in Loveland.

Investigators believe it is likely these two incidents are related and is seeking information about this vehicle of interest.

Specifically, the task force needs the public’s help in locating a 1970s model, full-size, single cab Chevrolet or GMC pickup truck. The pickup is one color, faded orange, and has a large spot of black primer on the driver’s side body, behind the driver’s door. The truck is described to have a full-size bed, possibly a 1973-1979 model GM pickup with round headlights.

Moore stated that the multi-agency task force that was formed to investigate the recent and apparently random shooting incidents in Northern Colorado continues to vigorously pursue any and all leads related to this investigation.

Anyone with information regarding this vehicle of interest is asked to call the Task Force Tip Line at 970-498-5595 or by email at [email protected] People with information may remain anonymous.

Law enforcement encourages anyone who sees a vehicle matching this description to please immediately call 911, and follow all the directions of the emergency dispatcher, so local law enforcement can respond. They also ask that people gather as much information about the vehicle as possible without placing themselves in harm.
