Woman wounded, boyfriend arrested in Glenwood shooting

James McCabe Mallin

A woman was airlifted to St. Mary’s Hospital in Grand Junction and her boyfriend was arrested after an overnight shooting in Glenwood Springs.

Glenwood Springs police said in a news release that James McCabe Mallin, 28, was arrested and taken to the Garfield County Jail, where he is on a no-bond hold.

Police said the incident occurred at a mobile home park on South Grand Avenue, where police were dispatched at 12:29 a.m. The reporting party, a male resident of the mobile home, met officers and said the shooting victim was inside, along with her boyfriend and the boyfriend’s father.

Police, joined by a Garfield County sheriff’s deputy, removed the men from inside and found the victim in a rear bedroom, with a wound to the back of her head. They administered cardiopulmonary resuscitation until Glenwood Springs Fire Department personnel arrived to begin treatment and take the unconscious woman to Valley View Hospital. Emergency staff there stabilized her before her flight by helicopter to Grand Junction. She was last reported to be in critical condition. Police did not release her name.

Police interviewed the three male residents of the home at the Glenwood police station, and an arrest warrant for Mallin was signed and executed. He was arrested on suspicion of attempted first-degree murder, first-degree assault, prohibited use of weapons and reckless endangerment.

The mobile home was placed under guard to await crime scene processing.
