      On November 3, 2014 District Attorney Pete Hautzinger released the findings of the Critical Incident Response Team (CIRT) and its investigation of this incident. The letter from Mr. Hautzinger to Grand Junction Police Chief John Camper states, “I conclude that all of the actions taken by members of your agency (GJPD) with respect to this situation were appropriate, reasonable and totally justified. I further conclude that there is absolutely nothing criminal about the actions taken by any the officers involved. I conclude that none of the officers involved did anything to unreasonably provoke or exacerbate the situation. Indeed, I believe their actions were exemplary and entirely consistent with reasonably protecting themselves and the people of this community.” The local news media covered this announcement extensively. Here are some links to that news coverage:
