Police have arrested a man who broke into the Colorado Supreme Court building in Denver and shot at police officers.

According to the Denver Police Department, they responded to an incident at the Ralph L. Carr Colorado Judicial Center around 1 AM local time, where they encountered an armed man. Despite being fired upon, officers did not return shots and successfully apprehended the man approximately two hours after their arrival.


Additional information revealed that a small fire occurred during the incident but was extinguished by the building’s sprinkler system. Authorities have not disclosed the fire’s origin, what was burning, or how the suspect gained entry into the building.

This event occurs against the backdrop of a high-profile legal battle involving the Colorado Supreme Court, which recently disqualified former President Donald Trump from the state’s Republican primary ballot based on a constitutional clause against those who engaged in insurrection. Currently, no link has been established between this legal battle and the break-in.
