One Juvenile Taken Into Custody in Assault #GVCopBeat

Posted on Updated on

img_2658At approximately 11:47 on Monday morning, a school resource officer at Grand Junction High School responded to a radio call for help on the lawn near the south end of campus. Officers discovered one juvenile male victim with what appeared to be stab wounds. The victim was transported to the hospital. While the extent of injuries is not known at this time, they are not expected to be life threatening. One juvenile female suspect was still on scene of the incident and was taken into custody. The juveniles involved are known to one another. Parents of both juveniles involved have been contacted.

The school was put into shelter in place as officers on scene at the school continue to investigate and process the scene. Despite initial rumors, NO gun is believed to have been involved in this incident.

There is no ongoing threat or danger at the school related to this incident, and the scene was contained within minutes. We understand how scary this is for parents. We encourage parents to make sure they are enrolled in emergency alerts through the Grand Junction Regional Communications Center. Parents should also enroll for emergency communications from Mesa County Valley School District 51 by texting “YES” to 67587. More information regarding this incident will be released as it becomes available.

EDIT: This release was updated to correct the time of the incident and to correct initial information that the school was placed into lockdown.  The school was put into shelter in place protocols, not lockdown.  We apologize for the misinformation and appreciate your patience as we sort through the preliminary details of the incident.
