A Colorado officer shot an armed man through the window of the man's home, police say

(CNN) A Colorado police officer is on administrative leave after shooting an armed man in the buttocks though the window of the man's house, according to the Aurora Police Department.

Police went on the night of October 10 to a home to talk with a suspect in an aggravated physical assault case, according to Aurora Police and a probable cause affidavit obtained by CNN affiliate KDVR.

When the officers arrived, they say they encountered Andrew Huff, 22, standing next to a truck outside. As officers in uniform approached the house, Huff fled indoors. He then looked out a window of a well-lit room as a responding officer waved at him, police said.

"The officer was certain Mr. Huff saw her and recognized her as a Police Officer," police said in a statement.

Huff allegedly disappeared from the officer's view, then reappeared at the window with a shotgun, police said.

Officer Alexander Ord shot at Huff, striking him in the buttocks, the affidavit states. Huff did not fire the shotgun and no officers were injured, the affidavit says.

On the way to the hospital, "Huff made several spontaneous utterances to include saying he just saw people (approaching the house), didn't know who they were and got shot," according to the affidavit.

Huff maintains the officers did not identify themselves before firing into his home, his attorney, Birk Baumgartner, told CNN.

"Huff saw someone sneaking through his yard, so he locked the door, retrieved his shotgun, and as he was looking out the window, he saw somebody move in front of the window," Baumgartner said. "He turned to grab his phone to call police and was shot in the back."

Body-camera image shows a man with a gun

The shooting comes days after a Fort Worth police officer was charged with murder for shooting a reportedly armed 28-year-old woman in her home, where she'd been playing video games with her nephew. The officer allegedly did not identify himself as police and fired into the home through a window, killing her. Baumgartner said Huff's shooting had "striking" similarities to the Fort Worth killing "in that police shot a person in their home with zero warning," he said. He said the affidavit is full of omissions and inaccuracies, and he accused the police and district attorney of selectively leaking materials -- including a single image from the body-camera footage -- to make Huff look bad.

A single still photo taken by Ord's body-worn camera shows what police say is Huff standing inside the house holding a shotgun.

"We will release the body worn camera footage when we can do so in a manner that does not impede any future court proceedings," the department said. Huff faces multiple charges, including felony assault, felony menacing and misdemeanor third-degree assault, Aurora Police said. Huff had been held on a $25,000 bond, online court records show.

Baumgartner said Huff, who was released on Wednesday, plans to plead not guilty to what he called the "unfounded" charges.

"They're clearly trumped up by Aurora Police Department in order to justify their shooting of one of their own citizens in the back in his own home," he said.

Ord is on leave "per department policy," Aurora Police said.

An investigation into the shooting will be presented by investigators to the 18th Judicial District Attorney's Office for review, police said in their statement. The Aurora Fraternal Order of Police did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Aurora Police Investigate Officer-Involved Shooting

In the evening hours of Thursday, October 10, 2019, Aurora Police officers responded to a residence in the 1500 block of South Bahama Street to contact a suspect in reference to an aggravated physical assault that occurred there earlier in the day.

Upon officer’s arrival they saw Mr. Huff standing next to a truck. As the officers (in full police uniform) approached the house, Mr. Huff immediately fled into the home. As mentioned in the affidavit, Mr. Huff was looking out of a window of a well-lit room as the responding officer was waving at him. The officer was certain Mr. Huff saw her and recognized her as a Police Officer. Mr. Huff then quickly disappeared from the officer's view. Mr. Huff then suddenly reappeared at the same front window armed with a shotgun. It was at this point one of the responding officers made the decision to discharge their weapon.

The picture accompanying this statement is a still image from a body worn camera that was worn by one of the responding officers. The person holding the shotgun inside the house is Mr. Huff. It should also be noted that the figure to the right is one of our officers knocking at the front door.

We recognize trust in our community hinges on accurate transparency in all critical incidents, especially in officer-involved-shootings. Senate Bill 15-219 is designed to not only provide a thorough investigation, but also transparency. We will release the body worn camera footage when we can do so in a manner that does not impede any future court proceedings.

In this day and age accuracy has never meant more, and the reckless publication of inaccurate information on any critical incident not only causes undue duress and concern for those involved, but also our community.

We appreciate the patience and trust our community continues to give us during these complex investigations.

As was the woman who was shot through the window and killed. But she was black so there's an uproar. White guy? Pfffft! He should have known better.

Sounds like the taxpayers of Aurora are going to pay out plenty for the mess that Officer Barney created.

I think so.

It's just their scumbag legal policy, probably adopted as a FUD tactic to reduce the size of the eventual settlement with their victim. So they'll drag it out for years, muddy the victim's name with any jury pool, etc. Usual police state tactics.
