GREELEY, Colorado — A man who was shot and killed by Greeley police shortly after a woman was found bleeding on her neighbor's front porch has been identified, but few other details have been released.

The Weld County District Attorney's Office said Monday that 50-year-old Louis Joseph Atencio, of Greeley, died of a single gunshot wound. He's suspected of shooting 41-year-old Angelina Abeyta, also of Greeley.

The Greeley Tribune reports ( ) police were called Friday morning after a man found Abeyta wounded on his porch. While officers were responding, a second report came in that shots were being fired inside a house across the street.

They arrived to find Atencio in the middle of the street with a gun. He was shot when he refused to drop the weapon.

Abeyta was listed in good condition Monday.
