During the evening of April 7, many Fort Collins residents in the surrounding areas of Lemay and Trilby received an alarming text message telling them to stay indoors and away from windows as police responded to an incident near that location. 

According to the Fort Collins Police, they received a call at 5:30 p.m. reporting of a domestic disturbance in the 6600 Block of Antigua Drive. When officers arrived on scene, they learned that Michael Aguirre Jr. was armed inside his residence with a gun, but that all other parties had been able to exit the home. Despite attempts to get Aguirre to exit the apartment, he refused to acknowledge officers or comply with commands. With the help of the Fort Collins Police SWAT team, Aguirre was taken safely into custody after approximately four hours.
