MONTROSE COUNTY, Colo. (KKCO) -- New details are being released about the man found dead after a deputy was shot near Crawford Monday.
The Montrose County Coroner says Kent Calhoun died from a single gunshot wound to the chest caused by a .44 Remington-Magnum caliber revolver. He apparently shot himself, the autopsy revealed.
Officers discovered Calhoun's body at 81301 E-81 Road on Monday. They had entered the home to look for the person who shot a deputy earlier that morning.
Montrose County Sheriff's deputies were responding to a domestic violence call just before 2 a.m. Monday, and when they knocked on the door, a male suspect shot one of the deputies, Corey Larsen, twice in the chest.
The Colorado Bureau of Investigation says Larsen was shot with a large caliber revolver.
Larsen was airlifted to St. Mary's Hospital in Grand Junction, where he underwent surgery and was released Tuesday. He will be recuperating at his home in Montrose.
