An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that an adult was taken into custody.
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KREX) — Around 7:30 A.M. Monday morning, a shooting took place near the apartments on Orchard and 29 Road. One adult was shot and has been pronounced dead. Another adult was detained by the Mesa County Sheriffs and taken to the hospital. The adult detained from the shooting has been released, pending further investigation.
Due to the proximity of the shooting in relation to its campus Bookcliff Middle School was put in a Shelter In Place. That has since been lifted.
“We are still working to determine the circumstances surrounding the shooting,” Mesa County Sheriff’s Office Public Information Officer Megan Terlecky shares, “If anyone saw the incident or has any information to this crime, contact the Mesa County Sheriff’s Office.”
