Police still trying to figure out what happened in Gallagher shooting

Stefan Alexander Martin-Urban, 21. Accused shooter in Gallagher-Fine deaths.

Grand Junction police still are seeking information about the killings of Flo Gallagher and Terry Fine last month.

The man believed responsible for the shootings, Stefan Alexander Martin-Urban, 21, was not under the influence of drugs, according to toxicology tests.

Investigators have traveled to California and Utah, where Martin-Urban, an Alaska native, lived most recently before moving to Lakewood to live with an aunt.

Putting together the pieces of his life, investigators have found that Martin-Urban bought gas at Cameo on the morning of Oct. 10 and bought food in Green River, Utah, at 8 that night. Just under 12 hours later, the deadly encounter happened in north Grand Junction. Martin-Urban committed suicide less than an hour later while authorities were pursuing him.

Investigators trying to piece together his activities in Grand Junction are asking the public for information from anyone who might have seen him.

They also are seeking the driver of a white, four-door pickup that was headed south on 27 Road at G Road between 8:20 and 8:30 on the morning of Oct. 11. 

The driver of the pickup waved the Gallaghers through the four-way stop, and investigators hope to learn whether he saw something that might help them.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call police via the hotline number dedicated to the shooting investigation, 244-3577.
