Woman shot at home of Montrose police officer

A woman was shot Tuesday afternoon at the home of a Montrose Police Department officer, Police Chief Tom Chinn said.

Officers were called about 1:30 p.m. by an adult woman at a home in the 3200 block of Raven’s Crest Drive in Montrose who reported she’d been shot in the arm, Chinn said. The chief said he couldn’t specify the reported circumstances of the shooting, citing the active investigation.

The woman, who wasn’t identified, is “indirectly” related to the Montrose officer who lives at the home along with the officer’s wife and children, he said.

Chinn declined to elaborate.

“Neither the officer or his family are suspects or persons of interest in this,” Chinn said.

Nobody was in custody as of 5 p.m.

The officer was on duty, working on patrol, when he got a call about the shooting and responded to his own home, Chinn said. The chief said he didn’t know if the officer was dispatched to the shooting, or if he received a call directly from the victim.

“He was not the first officer on scene,” he said.

Chinn said he didn’t know the woman’s condition. Despite the nature of the incident, Montrose police will continue to investigate.

“At this point and time, I don’t anticipate calling another agency to assist us or assume the investigation,” Chinn said.
