Guard shoots man after alleged threat

A man was in critical condition Sunday night after being shot by a security guard early Sunday morning.

The victim, Steven Carrillo, age unknown, was shot about 2:25 a.m. near the intersection of Lake and Joliet avenues, according to a press release issued by Pueblo Police Det. Mark Bravo.

The unidentified guard told police he saw a black Toyota truck knocking over traffic cones as it drove through a construction site on Lake. When stopped, the driver of the truck, Carrillo, allegedly got out, confronted the guard and pulled out a silver and black folding knife.

The guard said Carrillo kept walking toward him with the knife and refused to stop even though he was told to several times, according to the press release. The guard fired one shot from a handgun, hitting Carrillo in the upper chest.

Carrillo was taken to St. Mary-Corwin Medical Center.

The guard reportedly works for Parker Excavation, the company handling the construction project.

No charges have been filed in the case, which remains under investigation, according to Bravo.
