138 Body-cam footage released of fatal Fort Collins officer-involved shooting
George Randall Newman, 26, died of multiple gunshot wounds in the early morning hours of October 1, 2017, at America’s Best Value Inn. An autopsy revealed he had “extremely high levels of methamphetamines” in his system at the time of his death. Police were called to the hotel following a 911 call in which the caller said he heard a loud noise and a hole appeared in the ceiling above him. Three officers arrived on scene and encountered a woman in the parking lot who said she was acquainted with the man in the room from where the gunshot originated. The woman told officers that her 3-year-old daughter was in the room with Newman. Newman answered the door holding a sawed-off shotgun and refused to put it down. Police say the lead officer fired his patrol rifle two times, striking Newman in the chest.
