FOUNTAIN, Colo. (KKTV) - Fountain police say a man with a history of threatening law enforcement is wanted for a recent shooting outside a local Love’s Country Store.

One person was injured in the shooting, which happened at 3 a.m. on June 16 outside the store off I-25 and Mesa Ridge Parkway. An employee told 11 News they heard gunfire outside, then discovered the victim.

Police say the victim wasn’t forthcoming with any information on the gunman, so initially detectives did not have a suspect description. Tuesday, the Fountain Police Department announced 41-year-old Steven Hober was suspected in the case.

Hober is a white man, 5-foot-11 and 215 pounds, and is bald with blue eyes. He is considered by police to be armed and dangerous and should not be approached.

Anyone with information on Hober’s whereabouts is urged to call Sgt. Sheyna Marshall at 719-382-6918. To stay anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 719-634-STOP.
