One woman was pronounced dead and the other woman, 26, is being treated for multiple stab wounds, according to a Fort Collins Police Services press release.

Tolentino Corzo-Avendano, 26, was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of first degree murder and attempted first degree homicide.  

Corzo-Avendano was identified as a suspect, and police determined his location early Wednesday morning. SWAT went to the address on Erin Ct. and spoke to Corzo-Avendano over a loudspeaker. When he did not respond, Flash Sound Diversionary Devices were used and more commands were given through the loudspeaker. 

Corzo-Avendano exited the building shortly after and surrendered. He was taken to Larimer County Jail on a no-bond warrant. 

Early afternoon Wednesday, police release information on another suspect. Tomas Vigil, 41, was arrested on suspicion of first degree murder and attempted first degree homicide.  

The investigation is ongoing, and anyone with any information on the incident is encouraged to contact Detective Dan Calahan at (970) 416-2051 or dcalahan@fcgov.com or submit an anonymous tip through Crime Stoppers at (970) 221-6868 or www.stopcriminals.org
