Man killed by Denver police on East Colfax during rush hour Wednesday identified

The Denver coroner’s office has identified the 36-year-old fugitive police shot multiple times after he brandished a gun.

Charles Boeh died of multiple gunshot wounds, according to Steven Castro, spokesman for the Denver Office of the Medical Examiner.

Boeh was pronounced dead at the intersection of Quebec Street and East Colfax Avenue, the news release says.

Boeh died of multiple gunshot wounds, Castro said. The manner of death is homicide, which means that he died at the hands of someone else. Investigators will determine whether the shooting was justified.

Boeh was wanted on suspicion of aggravated robberies in Colorado and out of state.

During rush hour Wednesday, he tried to drive his Audi between cars stopped at a red light on Colfax, ramming and damaging the victims’ vehicles, police have said.

During the incident, the driver “brandished a firearm” and three Denver officers opened fire.
