Schools put on lockdown

The search for a possible suicidal man caused three schools in the Grand Valley to be on lockdown Monday, but only for a short time.

Deputies with the Mesa County Sheriff’s Department called for the lockdowns at Bookcliff Middle School and Fruitvale and Nisley elementary schools for about a half-hour after they couldn’t find the man.

Deputies were called to a home in the 2900 block of Hall Avenue on a report that the man was holding a gun to his chin, but he wasn’t there when they arrived.

A short time later, they found him on nearby East Greenfield Circle.

He was unarmed.

The department would not release the identity of the rider or details of the death.

Deputies and emergency medical service workers gave the rider CPR to no avail, said department spokeswoman Bobbie McCoid.

Horse rescued from trailer

 

Fruita police rescued a horse from a trailer that had come unfastened from the truck pulling it on Interstate 70 near the Fruita exit early Monday.

The trailer had come loose but didn’t roll, although it did come to rest on its side, said Sgt. John Coughran of the Fruita Police Department.

The trailer had to be cut to free the animal, he said. The Kansas man who was pulling the trailer was not cited for any traffic infraction.
