A man was shot dead today at the Seven Eleven at 5 Widefield Blvd.
According to reporters and people at the scene, law enforcement had the man in question under surveillance for at least the last several days. Earlier today, they were following him on Hwy 85 when he took evasive action, turning on to Fontaine and driving behind the Aamco and New Generations Homes buildings.
At that point law enforcement officers decided they needed to move in and blocked the vehicle as it pulled out along side the Seven Eleven. The driver rammed their vehicle. They opened fire, killing the man, whose name has not yet been released. Police believed the man was armed, but it is not yet clear if the suspect fired at officers.
