Eric St. George Guilty of Shooting at Lakewood Police Agents

Eric St George

(Golden, CO – April 6, 2018) A Jefferson County jury returned guilty verdicts in the case against Eric James St. George, DOB: 7-31-77, for firing shots at Lakewood Police agents in July, 2016.

Following seven days of trial, the jury came back with their verdict on February 9, 2018. They deliberated two hours before finding St. George guilty of nine counts, including:

  • Two counts of Attempted Murder (F2);
  • Two counts of First Degree Assault – Threat to a Peace Officer (F3);
  • Three counts of Menacing (F5);
  • Illegal Discharge of Firearm (F5);
  • Unlawful Sexual Contact (M1)

On July 31, 2016 Lakewood Police were called to 8139 W. Eastman Place on a report of shots fired. The 911 call was made by a young woman who said she had just left St. George’s home. The woman was an exotic dancer and had been paid by St. George to dance for him. He began to grope her. She objected and quickly left. He followed her outside and began to fire shots.

During the trial, Lakewood Police agents told the jury that when they arrived, they tried contacting St. George by phone. Six attempts at a phone conversation were not successful. Police agents began establishing a perimeter around his apartment. St. George came out his back door and moved away from his apartment, into the parking lot, until he had a direct line of sight with a police agent who was taking cover behind a vehicle. He raised the shotgun, aimed it directly at her, and fired three shots. The agent returned fire, injuring St. George. The agent was not injured by gunfire.

St. George used three weapons as he was firing at police agents.

The Critical Incident Response Team (CIRT) was activated immediately in this investigation because it was an officer-involved shooting. The CIRT team is comprised of detectives from law enforcement agencies across Jefferson County and the district attorney’s office. In this situation, detectives from the Lakewood Police Department were excluded from participating in the CIRT investigation in order to provide the most thorough and independent results. This process ensures that a detective will never be involved in the investigation of one of their own. At its completion, this investigation was presented to the District Attorney’s Office for review.  On October 7, 2016 District Attorney Pete Weir wrote a letter to the Lakewood Police Chief notifying him that the shooting was determined to be justified.

Sentencing for Mr. St. George has been set for April 4 at 1:00.
