GJPD Finds No Credibility to Mesa Mall Shooting Threat

Newsflash - Patch

Earlier today, the Grand Junction Police Department received a call from a reporting party stating they had information that someone had threatened to carry out a shooting, specifically targeting women, at Mesa Mall.

Grand Junction Police Department officers, detectives, and our Intel unit, were all dispatched to actively investigate the credibility of the threat. Officers did identify a subject related to the potential threat, who was contacted and thoroughly interviewed. After hours of investigation, we found no credible or corroborating evidence to the statement that was made on social media, and officers confirmed the subject involved never posted any threatening statements on social media.

Currently, officers believe there is no ongoing threat to the public.

We want our community to know that we take threats like these extremely seriously and your safety continues to be our top priority. While there was no credibility found to the threat made on social media, during the course of our investigation, officers were made aware of an ongoing issue at Mesa Mall involving employees and patrons. If you have been harassed while at the establishment, by an adult male in his mid-20’s, approximately 6’ 2” tall and 240 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes, you may have information that could aid in our investigation. Please contact the Grand Junction Police Department at 970-242-6707 and ask to speak with an officer.
