FRISCO — The suspect implicated in an officer-involved shooting in the Whole Foods Market parking lot in Frisco on Monday night has been identified as 33-year-old Derek Baker, of Loveland, District Attorney Bruce Brown said.

Brown said Baker was shot in the arm, and was later evaluated at St. Anthony Summit Medical Center before being released to law enforcement officials.

Brown said Baker has been initially charged with a felony count of attempted vehicular assault, along with misdemeanor charges of menacing, eluding and disorderly conduct. Brown said the charges could be modified in the coming days as details continue to emerge.

The District Attorney’s Office typically has seven days to file charges, but Brown said they might ask for an extension.

“Because of the complexity of this case, the likelihood is there will be numerous interviews and forensic testing,” said Brown. “This type of incident takes several weeks to reach final conclusions. We’ll look at if from every possible perspective, and we will file charges in a fashion that reflects those determinations.”

Frisco Police Chief Tom Wickman said the officer who discharged his or her firearm has been placed on leave pending an investigation by the Colorado Bureau of Investigation.
