Denver, Colorado — On May 1, 2023, around 8:30 p.m. Denver Police officers responded to a family disturbance in the 2000 block of North Oneida Street in the South Park Hill neighborhood. Officers were met outside the home by a woman who stated that the suspect was inside armed with a knife. She had called 911 and claimed that her nephew, 55-year-old Frankie Lee Evans, had used drugs earlier in the evening. The woman provided officers a key to the house. After entering, the officer found Evans and two hostages in a backroom. Evans, who had a knife in his hand, locked the bedroom door and wouldn’t let anyone else leave or come in. Evans can be heard yelling, “I have hostages!”. To avoid escalation, the officers decided not to try to force entry into the bedroom.
A mental health clinician also responded and attempted to speak with Evans, who refused to talk with her and instead preferred to speak with the officers. They bargained for nearly an hour until a scuffle was heard from inside, which was caused by the male victim’s attempt to disarm Evans. The officers advanced near the bedroom door and kicked it open at that point. As soon as it was opened, Evans could be seen battling with the male victim inside the room while brandishing a knife. Two DPD officers fired their firearms, striking Evans several times. They fired a total of five rounds. Evans was pronounced dead at the scene. Neither of the hostages were hit by gunfire. Both were checked on the scene, and the male victim was transported to the hospital for treatment of a stab wound to the chest. Both victims later reported that Evans held the knife throughout the encounter, preventing both victims from leaving the room.

Great job! Saving lives… too bad this won’t make the national news.
wHy diNuT dEy TazE HiM……….
5 shots to the head…crazy, props the the officers took action …
The news. Relative was simply hugging his family and tucking them into bed. Joy Behar "Why cant officers just shot them in the knees?"
Lmao when the cop was telling him the time, it felt like he was gonna say "It's 9:31 and time to meet my gun."
Thank God for the police !
IN MY VIEW
It is a shame the man had to die but the innocent hostages had to be saved from him killing them. Officers acted wisely.
Racist cops commiting murder on a law abiding BLM citizen. The cops need to be brought to justice for this crime. Its time to call al sharpton and build a statue. We the people need to stand up. Its time to riot and loot.
What the hell
these are the officers I want in my city
Wasn't Denver a beautiful place to live once? What happened?
Looks like they hired my Tio Roberto to be a cop 😂 0:39
I love the spatter paint you did on the wall.
Yeah about that
A mental health clinician also responded and attempted to speak with Evans, who refused to talk with her and instead preferred to speak with the officers
Notice the shelf on the right in the hallway filled with prescription bottles? Probably nothing…
i commend ❤this officers and feel for them can you imagine if we didn’t have them 😮
Do not do drugs.
Well done officers 👏🏻 that’s a horrible situation
Wonder how many of these family members were out rioting with anti police billboards in 2020-present
Thank you, Officer. You guys did the right thing. Not only that, but you did the right thing very well… you used your emotional intellect to deescalate, and when that failed, you rushed in like a fcking gladiator. Good job.
But we should just keep decriminalizing drugs???????????????????????
Just proves that the "mental health official" idea is crap.
Hold on… they brought in a clinician, and that didn't work. What, I was told if they came there wouldn't have to be force. That's weird. It is like these situations are deadly.
Damn, he really hit his off button.
Great job officers.👏
that officers got a nice stache
Frankie done los' his whol mind……
Those officers ……. 👆👍
Idk if the other guy in the room was her brother or what but to try and disarm someone acting on that level of crazy takes a lot of balls
Outstanding professionalism on the officers' part. Thank God for law enforcement.
We’ll send in mental health professionals, they said. It’s a great idea, they said. FOOLS!!
Awesome job officers! No hesitation. Saved laves.
she had him killed. she deliberately lunged for the knife as soon as she heard the cops coming. I mean good riddance but that chic set him up.
How many will demonstrate and say this is police violence? Or just file a lawsuit demanding money?
170grain JHP through dudes empty brain matter sure made him comply instantly, and forever.
🇺🇸🇺🇸 god job sargt
Good Night Irene
1 shot, lights immediately OUT!
Those poor children are gone forever. They'll never forget this.
