Officer Involved shooting #GVCopbeat

Posted on Updated on

The 21st Judicial District Critical Incident Response Team is investigating an officer involved shooting in the area of N. 10th Street and Hill Avenue in Grand Junction. It is standard procedure to activate the CIRT in officer involved shootings.  Early information indicates this shooting followed two other incidents involving a man with a gun, both in the County and in downtown Grand Junction.
Due to the nature of this incident, we hope to hold a media briefing sometime later this evening.
The Critical Incident Response Team is comprised of the following agencies: Grand Junction Police Department, Mesa County Sheriff’s Office, Fruita Police Department, Palisade Police Department, Colorado State Patrol, 21st Judicial District Attorney’s Office and Colorado Bureau of Investigation. It is generally activated when a law enforcement agency is involved in a critical incident to ensure a complete and accurate investigation.
