FORT LUPTON, Colo. (AP) – A man is dead after being shot in front of his home during a fight near Fort Lupton.
Authorities say the fight started Wednesday night because of a dispute over at least of one his dogs, a pit bull, who had allegedly been harassing a neighbor’s horses.
The man killed has been identified as 43-year-old Hugo Botello-Gonzalez. His wife was also wounded and taken to the hospital. Her condition isn’t known.
The Weld County sheriff’s office says deputies responded to complaints there on Sunday and seized at least one dog.
