Fort Collins Police Services arrested a suspect while responding to a shooting around 1:15 a.m. on June 23. 

According to a press release from FCPS, the incident occurred in a home at the 3300 block of Red Mountain Drive. 18-year-old Samuel Power was arrested after firing shots at the two other people in the home, injuring a female resident.

The press release states that prior to the shooting, Power had been “acting erratically” and fired shots after a discussion with the home’s two other residents. The female resident was struck and able to exit the home in order to call the police while the male resident convinced Power to put the gun down and stay inside until police were able to respond. 

Power has been taken into custody and was arrested for first degree assault, and the female resident was transported to a local hospital and is expected to recover from her injuries. Additional charges for Power are pending while the investigation is ongoing. 

FCPS urges anyone with information regarding this incident to contact Detective CJ O’Loughlin at 970-416-2571 or Crime Stoppers of Larimer County at 970-221-6868 (if wishing to remain anonymous).

About the Contributor
Natalie Weiland, News Director
Natalie Weiland is a sophomore political science student with a minor in legal studies and a fierce love of the Oxford comma. Weiland grew up in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and served as an editor for her high school’s yearbook during her senior year. She credits the absolute chaos of the 2016 presidential election for introducing her to — and getting her hooked on — the world of politics and journalism. Her journey with The Collegian started in the fall of her freshman year when she began writing for the news desk.  In her spare time, Weiland enjoys reading and attempting to not have a heart attack every time The New York Times sends a breaking news update to her phone. She has two incredibly adorable dogs (that she will gladly show pictures of if asked) and three less-adorable siblings.  As news director, Weiland's main goal is to ensure that students trust The Collegian to cover stories that are important to and affect them, and she hopes that students are never afraid to reach out and start a conversation. Weiland is excited to see what The Collegian has in store this year and hopes to explore the campus community through reporting.
