Alley fight leads to arrest

A 33-year-old man faces felony charges after allegedly pulling a gun during a fight in an alley near Lincoln Park on Sept. 30.

Adolph Anthony Nuncio was arrested after a Grand Junction police officer responded to the alley behind 2425 Teller Ave. on a report of two men fighting over a gun, according to arresting documents.

One man told officers he had been sitting in a car nearby when Nuncio and another man walked past. After a verbal confrontation, the man said he followed Nuncio and the other man into the alley to see what they were going to do, the report said.

The man said he started fighting with Nuncio; while the two were wrestling, he thought he felt a gun in Nuncio’s waistband and saw Nuncio reaching for it, the report said.

The man said he got the gun away from Nuncio and held him at gunpoint until officers arrived.

Nuncio, a convicted felon, said he pulled the gun out of his waistband “to throw it away so it was not involved in the fight,” the report said.

He was arrested on suspicion of attempted first-degree assault, felony menacing, two weapons charges and a misdemeanor assault charge.


According to the Mesa County Sheriff’s Office:

■ Davey Kilcoyne, 31, was arrested Sunday for an active warrant out of the Colorado Department of Corrections.

■ Deputies took an unattended death report in the 3200 block of Front Street on Friday.
