Authorities have found the vehicle involved in a driveby shooting that happened in Grand Junction over the weekend, but no suspects were in custody Monday night. The vehicle involved in the shooting was found in a Clifton neighborhood. Witnesses at the mobile home park where the shooting occurred were able to provide the Mesa County Sheriff's Office with a detailed description of the vehicle including the make, model, color and license plate number.
Although the car has been located law enforcement officials say any evidence inside has most likely been destroyed. The car has been impounded, however, the suspects who used the car in the shooting set fire to the vehicle Monday morning destroying any finger prints, fiber sample or any other distinguishing evidence.
According to the Mesa County Sheriff's Office around 8:30 a.m. a construction worker spotted a man on Green Leaf Drive in Clifton. They say he appeared to be in his 20's. He was seen breaking the windows of a 1997 gray Dodge Intrepid with a hatchet and then set the car on fire.
Sunday, witnesses reported that two men in the Intrepid fired five to seven shots at trailer #6 at the Grand Rivers Mobile Home Park, hitting the home four times.
Sheriff's deputies did follow up with the owner of the vehicle that was discovered Monday. The woman told law enforcement officers that she lent the car to someone and while the authorities do know the name of the person who borrowed the car.
They have not released the suspect s name.. and no arrests have been made.
