Attempted Murder Suspect Surrenders To Authorities

Charles Pruitt, one of two men suspected in the shooting of James Finnegan in the desert, turned himself in to authorities Monday night.

According to the Mesa County Sheriff's Office, despite the extensive manhunt during the last two weeks to find the alleged shooters, Pruitt's arrest was uneventful.

The suspect turned himself over to authorities at the Sheriff's Office around 8:00 p.m., and was booked without incident.

Investigators have not talked with Pruitt specifically about the shooting of Finnigan, and the next step for the alleged shooter will be the beginning of the judicial process. Pruitt is facing several charges, including attempted murder.
