GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado — An investigation is underway after officers shot and killed a man who displayed a gun after leading them on a high-speed chase along Interstate 70 west of Glenwood Springs.

Walt Stowe, a spokesman for the Garfield County Sheriff's Office, tells the Post Independent ( ) the suspect fled in a pickup truck after officers were called to a domestic disturbance near Parachute on Tuesday afternoon. Officers pursued the man onto the interstate, and state troopers put out spike strips that flattened the truck's front tires.

Investigators say the man fled on foot holding a gun to his head and was shot when he turned back toward the officers and refused to follow their orders. The suspect's name has not been released.

No one else was injured.
