Fruitvale Shooting Death Under Investigation

Mesa County Sheriff's investigators are still checking into a shooting that happened earlier Thursday in Fruitvale.

Deputies responded to a home on a quiet cul-de-sac west of 30 Road early Thursday afternoon after a woman called 911 when she came to the home at 646 Hudson Bay Court to find the front door open and her ex-husband bleeding on the floor with an apparent gun shot wound. A shotgun was found on the floor nearby.

Investigators were called to the scene where they swept the home and yard for evidence.

Investigators do not believe there's anything suspicious about the shooting but they're waiting for the coroner to rule on the manner of death before closing the case.
