classic mini leather uggs fatally shot in Walmart parking lot overnight
A 23 year old Longmont man was shot in the parking lot of Walmart, at 2285 E. today and later died of his injuries, police said. on a report of a possible shooting. They found that a witness had transported the victim to Longmont United Hospital, where he died of his injuries.
The victim’s name will be released by the Weld County Coroner’s Office pending notification of next of kin.
Mike Doody had been asleep in his RV in the Walmart parking lot when he said he heard what he thought were three gunshots.
“I heard some yelling, too,” he said. “But I didn’t think anything of it.”
The Longmont Police Department, Weld County District Attorney’s Office and Weld County Coroner’s Office are investigating the death.
At the scene this morning, police have taped off an area in the north end of the parking lot about the size of two Olympic sized swimming pools.
There is a white minivan stopped at a 45 degree angle against a parking abutment inside the taped off area.
Three members of the Longmont Emergency Unit were seen taking what appear to be metal detectors out of a truck.
The Walmart is open for business.
Sunday’s shooting death, should it be ruled a homicide, would be Longmont’s first of 2017. There have been seven homicides in Boulder County so far this year, though Sunday’s death would not be added to that tally as the shooting occurred in Weld County.
