Wounded Montrose deputy released from St. Mary’s

KENT CALHOUN: Neighbors identified him as living in home

A Montrose County sheriff’s deputy shot twice early Monday during a domestic violence call was released today from St. Mary’s Hospital, according to the Sheriff’s Department.

Deputy Corey Larsen, who was in surgery on Monday afternoon, “will be recuperating at home in Montrose,” the agency said in a release.

The Sheriff’s Department has said Larsen was shot in the chest and abdomen — one round was stopped by a protective vest — while trying to contact the suspect in a domestic violence call at 81301 E 81 Road. The suspected shooter, Kent Calhoun, 52, was found dead inside the home when authorities entered around 9:45 a.m.

Calhoun, a ditch rider for the Fruitland Irrigation Co., was fired from his job last week and was given 30 days to leave the E 81 Road home, according to Danny Todd, president of the irrigation company.
