A Longmont police officer was notified July 20 of a gunshot fired during a disturbance, Longmont police Sgt. Matt Cage said. Officers attempted to contact the man, but he “disappeared into the neighborhood” east of downtown Longmont.

A reverse 911 alert was sent in the area bounded by Fourth and Fifth avenues and Martin and Atwood streets, advising residents to shelter in place because the suspect was considered armed, Cage said.

A warrant was issued for the arrest of Isaiah Carpio, 22, on suspicion of second-degree assault, possession of a weapon by a previous offender, two counts of felony menacing, two counts of reckless endangerment and obstruction of a peace officer, online court records show. The Longmont affidavit is sealed.

Five days later, Carpio was arrested by Boulder police in the 1500 block of Pine Street. Police responded to reports of a man, later identified as Carpio, attempting to break into a white Dodge Charger. Carpio claimed the car was his, according to the arrest affidavit.

Boulder police learned there was a warrant issued for Carpio’s arrest. Carpio cooperated with the arrest until officers pulled a phone cord out of his pocket, according to the affidavit, and then he attempted flee. Carpio tried to get away until officers found bags of drugs in his right pocket, which Carpio admitted was methamphetamine.

Carpio was arrested by Boulder police on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance, obstructing a peace officer and resisting arrest.

Carpio has a hearing on advisement in both cases scheduled at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday. Carpio remains in the Boulder County jail with bond set at $50,000 in the Longmont case. Bond information was not available in the Boulder case.

At the time of arrest, Carpio was on probation after pleading guilty to first-degree criminal trespassing on May 10, 2019, in Boulder County, online court records show. He has an open case in Douglas County, where he pleaded guilty to two counts of assault in 2017. He has three open cases in Larimer County, where he pleaded guilty to possession of a weapon in one case, and is also facing charges of criminal impersonation, felony menacing, possession of a weapon, resisting arrest, obstruction of a peace officer and punishment for habitual criminal.
