A babysitter was shot and killed in Colorado while trying to stop a man from stealing a truck outside the home where he was looking after a young girl, cops said.

Ryan Rogina, 30, of North Dakota, was fatally gunned down outside the home in Windsor while the girl’s mother was out with friends on Friday night, CBS Denver reported.

Family members of the child said Rogina ran outside when he heard 32-year-old Trevor George allegedly trying to steal a truck that was parked outside in a pumpkin patch.

George allegedly then fatally shot Rogina, before going inside and starting to strangle the young girl, the outlet reported.

Shortly after the murder, the girl’s mother returned with friends and discovered Rogina’s body on the driveway, police said.

While some members of the group attended to Rogina, she ran inside to check on her daughter — but George then allegedly pointed a gun at her when she reached the door, the outlet reported.

Witnesses said George then took off to a nearby property, where allegedly stole a car and drove away from the scene.

Hours later, George was spotted driving the stolen vehicle on Interstate 25 and was arrested at a gas station in Fort Collins, police said.

He now faces charges that include murder, aggravated robbery and child abuse resulting in serious bodily injury, the report said.

The young girl was taken to a nearby hospital, where she was treated and released, according to CBS Denver.
