SummaryMatthew was driving with his significant other and infant child and pulled over for an apparent traffic violation. The officers claim he wouldn't put his hands out of the window and was cursing at them, that he then struck his girlfriend and pointed the car towards the officers with the car in park. At this time the officer fired two shotgun rounds striking him in the head and arm. He was treated at Cheyenne Regional Medical Center before being flown to Denver for more intensive care. The last I heard about his status he was in a vegetative state, and I can't remember/couldn't find whether they ended up removing life support or letting him remain living in vegetative state.
