3 suspects accused in Montrose shooting

Oscar Rodriguez

Angel Maheda

Saul Madrid

Three men have been arrested after a passenger in one vehicle shot at the driver in another vehicle, according to the Montrose County Sheriff’s Department.

A man said he was driving south on U.S. Highway 50 near Jay Jay Road at 3:30 p.m. Sunday when the driver of a white Cadillac Escalade began tailgating his vehicle.

The man told police he started to speed to get away from the vehicle when he came upon a black Monte Carlo.

The man said he attempted to pass the Monte Carlo, but the driver of that vehicle blocked him from doing so and he passed the Monte Carlo on the opposite side of the road.

As the driver passed the vehicle, several shots were fired at his car, the man told police.

Deputies later found the black Monte Carlo in the 12300 block of 6300 Road. A witness identified the driver of the Monte Carlo as Saul Marcelino Madrid, 19, and the shooter in that vehicle as Oscar Joshua Rodriguez, 20.

Rodriguez was arrested on suspicion of attempted second-degree murder, and Madrid was arrested on suspicion of complicity to attempted second-degree murder.

As the victim was talking to police at the scene, the Escalade passed. The driver of that vehicle, Angel Ulises Maheda, 22, was arrested on suspicion of complicity to attempted second-degree murder. Police said they are still investigating the incident.
