The Denver Post - - NEWS - By Kirk Mitchell

A man who charged sev­eral law en­force­ment of­fi­cers after al­legedly steal­ing a pickup late Christ­mas night was shot in the hand, au­thor­i­ties say.

He was taken to the St. An­thony Sum­mit Med­i­cal Cen­ter, Sum­mit County Un­der­sh­er­iff Joel Cochran said.

The iden­ti­ties of the at­tacker and the deputy who fired sev­eral shots have not been re­leased.

The in­ci­dent hap­pened late Sun­day after a black Toy­ota SUV was stolen out­side a 7-Eleven, where some­one had left it idling, Cochran said. Deputies spot­ted the SUV in Frisco.

The man held a knife up to him­self in a threat­en­ing way and re­fused to obey or­ders by the of­fi­cers, he said.
