LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigations is investigating after Albany County sheriff's deputies shot and killed a Colorado man at a ski resort.
48-year-old John Alan Britton died Sunday at Snowy Range Ski Area after deputies say he charged at law enforcement with a knife.
Deputies Matt Donnell, Edward Rosier, Aaron Gallegos and Adam Dean were placed on administrative leave pending the conclusion of the investigation.
The deputies received a report of a suicidal man at the ski resort and found Britton in his truck at a parking lot. According to a news release, Britton refused to leave his truck. When he did leave, he allegedly charged the deputies.
