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.

BURNS, Ore. (AP) — The last four armed occupiers of a national wildlife refuge in eastern Oregon said they would turn themselves in Thursday morning after law officers surrounded them in a tense standoff.
BURNS, Ore. (AP) — An occupation by armed protesters of a national wildlife refuge in southeastern Oregon started out with demands that two jailed ranchers be freed and that the federal government relinquish 300 square miles to local control for ranching, mining, logging and other uses. It has stretched on for more than a month.
The four armed activists who on Wednesday night were surrounded by the FBI at a wildlife refuge in eastern Oregon have remained on the site despite the arrests of group leader Ammon Bundy and others Jan. 26 on a remote road outside the refuge. The tense standoff between the FBI and the four occupiers was being livestreamed on the Internet. Late Wednesday the occupiers said they would turn themselves in Thursday morning.
