Colorado Authorities Link Two Random Shootings; Bicyclist Dead


Colorado police have evidence linking the killing of a 48-year-old bicyclist in Windsor, Co., in early May and the April shooting of a woman on an interstate highway in Larimer County, Co., the Denver Post reports. The two victims appear to have been randomly targeted and two shots were fired in each case. Windsor Police Chief John Michaels would not disclose the evidence, and he added, “There is no indication” the two victims knew each other, Michaels said.

A task force has been formed to investigate the shootings and includes the FBI, Windsor police, Weld County prosecutors and the sheriff’s offices of Weld and Larimer counties. Michaels declined to comment on whether the two shootings could be characterized as sniper attacks. The FBI has offered a $10,000 reward for information in the case, and another $2,000 is offered by Northern Colorado Crime Stoppers.
