Shooting Inside Home Causes Shelter In Place

Grand Junction, CO - A Grand Junction man was arrested Friday night after an incident in which shots were reported being fired from inside a home.

It all started around 6:30 pm, when Grand Junction police were dispatched to a home in the 300 block of Rodell Drive, in the Heatheridge Estates neighborhood. According to a news release from GJPD, the occupant of the home was known to police from previous calls, and that he was known to have firearms and had been uncooperative with police in the past.

A shelter-in-place notification was sent to people in the neighborhood, and some roads in the area were closed off for a time. 

Around 9 pm, the man came out of the house and surrendered peacefully. No one was injured.

GJPD say they arrested Christopher Masten, 33, of Grand Junction. He has been charged with Illegal Discharge of a Firearm (F5), Prohibited Use of a Weapon (M2), and Reckless Endangerment (M3), and is being held in the Mesa County Detention Facility.
