Late Saturday night, officers were dispatched to a reported suspicious death at a hotel in the 700 Block of Horizon Drive.  Upon arrival, officers found an adult male with apparent gun shot wounds.  The male was deceased.  This afternoon, officers arrested two adult males related to this incident. Further information will be released as it becomes available with sensitivity to the ongoing investigation. The Mesa County Coroner’s Office will be responsible for releasing the identity of the deceased once appropriate notifications have been made. 

This is the third incident involving gun violence that the GJPD has responded to in the last four days.  Officers and detectives have been working around the clock interviewing witnesses and processing evidence.  At this time, the incidents do not appear to be related. Previous releases regarding the other two incidents can be found here.
