Boulder County Coroner IDs Greeley Man Killed in Triple Stabbing in Longmont

September 26, 2018

Longmont police were at a home at the corner of East Sixth Avenue and Lashley Street Tuesday night to investigate an incident in which three people were stabbed, including Andrew Gallegos of Greeley, who died of his wounds.

The Boulder County Coroner has identified the man killed in a triple stabbing Tuesday night in Longmont as Andrew Gallegos of Greeley.

The two others involved in the stabbing — a 29-year-old man and a 54-year-old woman — took themselves to UCHealth Longs Peak Hospital with stab wounds, according to Longmont Police Deputy Chief Jeff Satur.

The woman underwent surgery and is now stable and recovering, Satur said Wednesday afternoon.

After police learned a third person had been stabbed, they responded to a home at the corner of Lashley Street and Sixth Avenue around 9:30 p.m.

Gallegos, 56, was taken to a hospital for his wounds and later died.

Officers were at the scene throughout the night Tuesday. Sixth Avenue at Lashley was taped off, as was the alley behind the home, Satur said. Officers served a search warrant at the home early Wednesday morning.

Police have not disclosed what caused the incident, but said it was contained to the home and that no suspects are at large, Satur said.

He added that one of the people might have stabbed the other to defend the third person, but he did not elaborate.

“It is still very early,” Satur said at the scene Tuesday.

Police are still investigating the stabbing, which is considered a domestic violence incident, and are withholding further information as they talk with witnesses.

Satur said they don’t expect to release the names of the other two individuals involved in the incident for a few days.

Any decision on charges will come after an autopsy, investigation and review by the Boulder County District Attorney’s Office, he said.
