Shortly after midnight, officers with the Grand Junction Police Department were dispatched to a residence in the 1100 Block of Main Street on a report of a shooting. Personnel with the GJPD and medical personnel with the Grand Junction Fire Department responded and located one adult male victim with an apparent gunshot wound to the chest inside the residence. Despite life saving efforts by law enforcement and
medical personnel, the victim was not able to be revived and was pronounced dead at the scene. Witnesses have been interviewed by law enforcement and, while no arrests have been made, there is not believed to be any outstanding safety threat to the community related to this incident.
This investigation is very active and ongoing. The Mesa County Coroner’s Office will be responsible for determining cause and manner of death, and will release the identity of the victim. We encourage people to refrain from perpetuating rumors on social media. We will release details as they become available.
