At 6:30 this morning, February 23, the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office received multiple reports of shots fired near a shopping center in the area of Ken Caryl and Shaffer Drive. Arriving deputies immediately established a perimeter and began a search of the area, but were initially unable to confirm shots had been fired or to locate a suspect.

To ensure the public’s safety, Ken Caryl was closed between C-470 and Alkire, and Shaffer Drive was closed at Ken Caryl. A CodeRed notification was sent to residences and businesses within a one-quarter mile radius of the area, instructing citizens to remain indoors while the incident was being investigated.

As deputies conducted a methodical search of the shopping center and its surrounding area, a cooperative witness provided the Sheriff’s Office with video footage taken by cell phone. What is believed to be gunfire can be heard in the video and an individual is seen approaching and entering a passenger vehicle, then leaving the area as the reverberations continued.

The Sheriff’s Office believes the individual in the video may have also heard the gun fire, or have witnessed shots being fired. This individual and others who saw, heard, or know something related to this incident are encouraged to contact the Sheriff’s Office at 303-271-0211 or Crime Stoppers at (720) 913-STOP (7867); reference CR 18-4549.
