Gunshot sounds in Ken Caryl turn out to be faulty generator

The sounds heard on Feb. 23 in Ken Caryl that were thought to be gunshots turned out to be made by a faulty generator.

The Jeffco Sheriff’s Office “determined the cause of the sounds to be a malfunctioning generator located on the roof of the Safeway shopping center building in the 12000 block of West Ken Caryl Avenue,” according to a news release. “Safeway has been very cooperative throughout our investigation and is currently taking steps to fix the problem.”

Residents also reported hearing the same sounds Friday morning.

No decision yet on unsupervised visits for Eastwood

By Deborah Swearingen

It’s still unclear whether the man who shot a high-powered rifle at Deer Creek Middle School, injuring two students, will be allowed temporary, unsupervised visits from the Colorado Mental Health Institute in Pueblo.

Bruco Eastwood, 39, was found not guilty by reason of insanity in October 2011 for the February 2010 shooting at the South Jeffco school and has been living at the Colorado Mental Health Institute ever since. During the shooting, Matthew Thieu and Reagan Weber, two eighth-grade students, were injured.
