The Larimer County Sheriff’s Office is still searching for a teenage gunman believed to have shot a man multiple times Thursday.
The suspect in the shooting, Teagan Pixley-Johnson, is a 15-year-old resident of Fort Collins, according to a statement from the sheriff’s office.
Deputies searched the area where the shooting occurred, but were unable to apprehend the suspect.
The injured, unidentified 28-year-old man was taken to a local hospital and underwent surgery last night, sheriff’s office officials said. The man, who the sheriff’s office said was known to Pixley-Johnson, was still alive Friday afternoon, although no further details about his condition were released by authorities.
At approximately 4:09 p.m. Thursday, the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office began receiving a 911 call reporting shots fired outside a home in the 400 block of South Overland Trail in Fort Collins, according to a news release. They responded and found the man who had been shot.
Investigators did not say how the two men knew each other or provide any details about what led to the shooting.
On Thursday, investigators obtained an arrest warrant for Pixley-Johnson and charged her with attempted first-degree murder, a second-degree felony; possession of a handgun by a minor, a felony of the 2nd degree; and aggravated juvenile offender, sentence enhancement.
He is believed to be armed and dangerous, and anyone who sees him is urged to call 911 and stay away.
Pixley-Johnson is 5 feet 8 inches tall, approximately 130 pounds, with blue eyes and brown hair. He was last seen wearing a black hoodie and black pants.
“We are following up on leads and tips,” said David Moore, public information officer for the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office. “The investigation is ongoing.”
Anyone with information about the incident who has not already spoken to authorities is asked to call Detective Tyler Schall at 970-498-5168 or Crime Stoppers at 970-221-6868, who will remain anonymous and may be eligible for a cash reward.
