Mich. Man Dead After Shooting In Colorado
HOT SULPHUR SPRINGS, Colo. (WWJ/AP) – A Michigan man is dead after a shooting in Colorado at the home of a sheriff’s deputy and a prosecutor.
Police said Tuesday that 32-year-old Joshua Lee Stevens of Coral, Mich., was killed when shots were fired at him from the house. He was believed to have been in Colorado for about a week, looking for work.
Authorities say a deputy district attorney for Colorado’s 14th Judicial District called 911 late Monday to report a stranger, later identified as Stevens, behaving erratically at her front door in Hot Sulphur Springs. A fight started after Stevens tried to get into the home, and shots were fired.
The prosecutor and her husband, who is a Grand County Sheriff’s Deputy, had minor injuries.
Authorities say there are no obvious ties to other recent shootings, including that of Colorado’s prison chief Tom Clements.
