Escapee fatally shot by Commerce City police - The Denver Post

Escapee fatally shot by Commerce City police - The Denver Post

Police opened fire on a sport-utility vehicle in Commerce City early today, killing Boulder County Jail escapee Phillip Michael Boldin, and wounding a woman who was with him.

The fatal shooting happened at just after midnight at a trailer park in the 6900 block of Colorado Highway 2, said Christian Rasmussen, a Commerce City Police Department spokesman.

The woman in the car, who has not been identified, was taken to Denver Health Medical Center, but details about her injuries have not been released.

Boldin, 42, has been wanted since September on an escape warrant after he walked away from a court-ordered halfway house in Boulder County last September.

Was thia man armed? What was the offense he was at a half way house for? Possibly we need to take the guns away from the police? Seems they are shooting people with out JUST cause.
