Yesterday morning Boulder County Deputies went to a home in response to a call
from a woman who said her  44-year-old son had locked himself in his room
for days and had made suicide treats.

When deputies arrived, the man displayed a hand gun and they fired at him. He was airlifted to a hospital in Denver where he was later pronounced dead.

The coroner will release the name of the deceased once all family members have been notified.
