No Indication Two New Colorado Shootings Part of Spree

A task force probing a series of apparent random shootings in northern Colorado appealed on Thursday to an anonymous tipster to contact them again, as the FBI increased reward money for information on the cases to $50,000.

The Northern Colorado Shooting Task Force formed earlier this year to investigate a string of shootings has not yet identified a suspect.

On April 22, Cori Romero was shot in the neck while she was driving on Interstate 25 from Harmony Road in Larimer County.

Two other shootings that occurred 15 minutes apart on June 3 in the city of Loveland are also being investigated by the task force.

The same day, an elementary school in the area reported to the Larimer County Sheriff’s Department that it too was damaged by a firearm. That was about two miles from where Bill Connole was shot and killed at East First Street and St. Louis Avenue later that night.

“Task force investigators have followed up on the information you provided”.

Spokesman David Moore says investigators are looking into shots fired at a health center and a school Sunday but says there’s nothing to indicate they are related those four shootings in the spring.

Moore said that the task force is monitoring seemingly random shootings throughout the country – he said none of which have yet been connected to the region’s four shootings. It’ll be the first time the task force has talked since June. It also released the sketch of a pickup truck it said is a vehicle of interest to the Loveland shootings based on several interviews and canvasses.
