The deputy in the officer-involved shooting is a three-year veteran with the Montrose County Sheriff's Office. Deputy Bruce Schmalz  is currently on paid administrative leave pending the results of the investigation from the Seventh Judicial District's Critical Incident Team, which is standard procedure for any officer-involved shooting. The Montrose County Sheriff's Office is also conducting an internal investigation, which is standard procedure for any officer response-to-resistance situation.

At this time, no further details surrounding the incident will be released until both investigations are completed. The suspect's identity, as well as cause and manner of death, will be released from the Montrose County Coroner's Office of Medical Investigations.
