Names of officers involved in shooting released

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - Officials have released the names of the officers and deputies involved in the shooting death of a Lakewood suspect near the Colorado/Utah border last week.

The Critical Incident Response Team is still investigating the incident. Officials say two police officers and four deputies were involved.
Corporal Jamie Pennay- MCSO
Deputy Blake McClellan- MCSO
Corporal Marco Montez- MCSO
Deputy Garth Cowley- MCSO
Officer Caleb Church- GJPD
Officer Tom Rayside- GJPD

All six of the law enforcement officers are on paid administrative leave, officials say that's standard procedure anytime there's an officer-involved shooting.

Officials also say interviews with them have been completed, and they will likely soon be approved to return to duty.

Once the Incident Response Team investigation is complete, the case will be forwarded to District Attorney Pete Hautzinger for his review and disposition. Officials say that could be a matter of weeks.
