It took less than 10 seconds after a Fort Collins police officer got out of his car at the scene of a reported active shooting to fire his weapon at a man holding his estranged wife hostage, newly-released body camera footage of the incident shows.

Officer Keith Hunter was justified in the shooting of 36-year-old Joshua Moore on Jan. 12, Larimer County District Attorney Cliff Riedel ruled Thursday.

Police responded to several reports of a person shooting a gun in the 2600 block of Bradbury Court that night. When Hunter arrived on scene around 10:08 p.m., he saw Moore chasing his estranged wife down the street. Hunter’s body camera footage shows Moore grabbing the woman and moving away from the officer.
