The Grand Junction teenager awaiting adult murder charges in connection with the shooting of Mesa County sheriff’s Deputy Derek Geer was apparently trying to get his hands on a handgun four days before the shooting.
Austin Patrick Holzer, 17, attempted to swap goods, including bullets for a rifle, to trade up for a handgun, according to the “Western slope guns” community Facebook page.
Less than three minutes after Mesa County sheriff’s Deputy Derek Geer reported to emergency dispatchers that he would be approaching a male suspect who reportedly had a gun, one of his colleagues called for help.
