A Mountain View police officer shot Enrique Gonzalez, 32, late Sunday December 14, 2015 during a traffic stop. Gonzalez died at Denver Health of a gunshot wound, the coroner's office said. His death has been ruled a homicide. The shooting happened just before 10 p.m. in the 5000 block of West 44th Avenue, where the officer was trying to confront Gonzalez during a traffic stop. The Mountain View officer has been placed on administrative leave, which officials say is routine, pending an investigation into the encounter. Colorad records show no prior arrests. Mountain View police say Gonzalez got out of his vehicle armed with a shotgun, at which point the officer opened fire, discharging several shots.
