On Saturday, February 4th, 2023, at approximately 12:02am, officers were dispatched to the 1200 block of E. 7th St. on a report of a shooting.
Upon arrival, officers located an adult male victim with one gunshot wound to the knee. Initial statements from family described there were shots being fired outside of the residence. At one point, the victim said he went outside to see what was happening and was shot in the knee.
As officers looked at evidence on scene, they found eleven shell casings outside of the victim’s residence. They also noticed a van that was parked in front of the residence had several bullet holes in the windows.
Through further investigation, it was found that the victim’s 17-year-old son shot his father because he wouldn't let the son borrow the family van. The son went outside with a rifle and began shooting at the van before eventually turning and shooting his father.
The juvenile was screened into Pueblo Youth Services Center for 1st Degree Assault.
