Search for Suspect who Tried to Shoot Officer at Weigh Station

Authorities are asking for the public's help to find a man who allegedly tried to shoot an officer at a weigh station in northern Colorado.

The suspect reportedly walked into the office at a weigh station off southbound I-25 in Fort Collins. Investigators say he pointed a gun at one of the Point of Entry Officers and pulled the trigger, but the gun didn't fire.

The suspect then allegedly left the office, got into his vehicle, and continued south on I-25.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic man in his early or mid 30s. He is between 5'7" and 5'9" tall with short black hair, a mustache and a medium build. He was wearing a light colored, long sleeved shirt, jeans and "wrap around" sunglasses.

The vehicle is described as a extremely dirty, white semi that is towing a white "box trailer." The semi has the numbers 4177 printed behind the passenger's side door. Those numbers could be part of a larger number.

The incident happened at 7:41 a.m. Sunday.

Anyone with information is asked to call Officer Wes Haynes at the Fort Collins police department at 970-221-6540
