COLUMBUS – More details have emerged regarding an incident that occurred at the Pinnacle Apartments in Columbus on Monday night.
According to the Columbus Police Department, a police officer observed a subject he knew to be 21-year-old Jordan Cordero walking around the 4500 block of 19th street around 6:54 PM. The officer knew Cordero had an active arrest warrant, and gave foot chase to Cordero, who entered an apartment building in the Pinnacle Apartments complex.
Officers located the resident of the apartment who knew Cordero, and were granted entry into the apartment. Upon entry, Cordero confronted the officers while armed with a shotgun. The original officer fired one round toward Cordero, who then fell to the floor and was physically subdued by officers.
The round did not appear to strike Cordero, but he did have a small leg laceration, which is believed to have occurred during the foot pursuit. The laceration was treated at the scene by Columbus Fire Paramedics, and Cordero was transported to the Columbus Police Department, and will be transferred to the Platte County Jail.
The original charges of Cordero’s arrested warrant were for failure to appear in court on charges of unauthorized use of a propelled vehicle and driving under suspension.
