“Shots Fired” Investigation Yields Results

JCSO logo

On the morning of February 23, the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office received multiple reports of shots fired in the area of Ken Caryl and Shaffer Drive. Witness accounts and video footage confirmed numerous successive sounds similar to gunfire. Our investigation that day and in subsequent weeks included a thorough search of the area, interviews with multiple witnesses, and visits to active construction sites to help determine the cause of the suspicious sounds.

This morning the Sheriff’s Office again received multiple calls of shots fired in the area of Ken Caryl and Shaffer Drive. Today’s investigation into the reports of shots fired determined the cause of the sounds to be a malfunctioning generator located on the roof of the Safeway shopping center building in the 12000 block of W. Ken Caryl Ave. Safeway has been very cooperative throughout our investigation and is currently taking steps to fix the problem.

“We sincerely appreciate the partnership with the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office and apologize for the disruption and alarm this may have caused our neighbors. We are working with both our contractor and manufacturer of the generator to resolve this issue as quickly as possible,” said Kris Staaf, Director of Public Affairs, Safeway.
