Gunnison, Colorado — On November 11, 2021, Sergeant Joseph Engleman, Officer Chris Isham, and Officer Kyle Timm were dispatched to Garden Walk Apartments in Gunnison, Colorado on a report that a non-resident was parking and possibly sleeping in a white 1994 Honda Accord located in the complex’s private parking lot. While enroute, dispatch ran a check on the license plate and notified the officers that it was reported stolen out of Lakewood Colorado. When they arrived, they parked their patrol vehicles blocking the exit to the lot and approached the Honda. A person, later identified as 44-year-old Gerry Cooper, was sitting in the driver’s seat, and was contacted by both Timm and Engleman.

They ordered him out of the car, and he failed to comply. Instead, he rapidly accelerated out of his parking space and attempted to escape. He side swiped the front passenger side of Isham’s vehicle and crashed into the front passenger side of Timm’s vehicle. He backed up and pulled forward hitting Isham’s vehicle again. Engleman managed to shatter the Honda’s driver side window in order to open the driver side door and remove Cooper from the vehicle. As he was reaching in, Cooper backed up again, striking Engleman with the door and dragging him backward before hitting a parked black truck. Engleman fired at Cooper from the ground twice while almost simultaneously Timm fired at him three times from the front of the vehicle. Isham did not fire his weapon. Cooper was pronounced dead at the scene.

  1. My only issue….could have actually justified shooting sooner and would have prevented the cop's leg getting run over. Good job boys. Cutting the tires was also a great move….he wasn't going very far no matter what.

  2. why didn't they block the car directly , just park right on his bumper he would be almost totally blocked and avoid the chances of all of this happening, especially if he was still sleeping so the element of surprise wasn't in consideration. the shooting is probably justified since he was reaching , but the incident could've been a lot smoother with an extra minute worth of planing.

  3. Doctor Kyle not too much for lifesaving intervention and would rather Call It a Wrap.
    He’s gone man, he’s gone. Who wants candy??
