Man shot by deputy

now free on bond

A man who was shot by a Montrose County sheriff’s deputy during a traffic stop earlier this month is free after posting bond.

Tryllen Richards, 31, was released from a hospital Saturday after being treated for a gunshot wound and was also released from custody after posting a $60,000 surety bond, according to Montrose sheriff’s spokeswoman Bobbie McCoid. He was briefly jailed on suspicion of first-degree assault, felony menacing and speeding.

Richards was believed to be a passenger in a vehicle who was wounded by deputies on the morning of Feb. 7 on Colorado Highway 145 in Naturita during a traffic stop. A deputy also suffered minor injuries.

Gun drawn in dispute


Fruita police responded to Bayberry Court on Feb. 6 on report of a neighbor pointing a gun at another person.

The dispute between neighbors allegedly began over a borrowed truck, police said. After arguing, and then both sides returning home, the confrontation flared again when one neighbor knocked loudly on the other’s door. A man answered the door with a black .357 Magnum revolver and allegedly pointed it at the person at the door, according to a police report.

“I don’t think he would shoot me, but if he did, I would have kicked his a**, as long as he didn’t get a head shot,” the alleged victim told police.

The man alleged to have pointed the gun denied to police that he did so and said he felt threatened. Based on statements from both sides, police declined to charge anyone with a crime.

Storage unit broken into

Suspects stole more than 30 tools, including grinders, drills, saws, sanders and an air compressor. The estimated value of the tools is $3,800.
