A robbery turned shooting Sunday night in Pagosa Springs has left one dead, with the suspect reportedly on the loose.
Archuleta County Coroner Dan Keuning said Larry Fisher, 71, of Pagosa Springs was shot during an attempted robbery at the Ski & Bow Rack at 354 East Pagosa St. Fisher is the owner of the store.
The shooting occurred around 9:30 p.m. Sunday, Keuning said. Fisher was flown to the trauma center at St. Anthony's Hospital in Lakewood, where he was later pronounced dead around 4:30 a.m.
Fisher was shot once in the chest, Keuning said. An autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday morning.
Keuning said the incident is being investigated as a homicide, and directed all inquiries about the investigation to the Pagosa Springs Police Department and Colorado Bureau of Investigation.

He was wearing a camouflage hoodie and jeans, Phillips said. The man is considered armed and dangerous, and should not be approached.
