District Attorney, Police Department announce arrest in officer-involved shooting

District Attorney Dave Young joined the Commerce City Police Department and the Colorado Department of Public Safety in announcing the arrest of Kevin Lord for his involvement in Sunday’s officer-involved shooting. Lord – the officer that was shot – was arrested at approximately 8:15 p.m. and charged with attempt to influence a public servant, which is a Class 4 felony, and false reporting to authorities, which is a misdemeanor.

“The community can take comfort in that there is no longer a suspected gunman targeting law enforcement officials,” said 17th Judicial District Attorney Dave Young.

“The Commerce City Police Department places the highest value on protecting the public and upholding the trust of the people we serve. We hold our officers to the highest standard and expect nothing but unquestionable integrity. It is for that reason that I am disappointed to learn that one of our own officers is accused of violating that trust,” said Police Chief Police Troy Smith.

From the beginning, a team of investigators from Commerce City, Adams County as well as state and federal authorities have been committed to justice in this case.

“The city’s officers have followed proper procedures and served the people of Commerce City with diligence,” added Smith. “We are grateful for the work they put forth in this investigation as well as the support we have received from local law enforcement communities across the state, the Colorado Department of Public Safety, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the news media and the community at large.”
