Police continue shooting investigation


Court documents allege 49-year-old Sandra Moore shot her boyfriend as he laid on a couch while a second bullet struck a living room television, as Craig police continue to look for answers in the case.

Investigators Friday said a motive still wasn't clear and no trouble was reported prior to the incident Thursday at 1679 Yampa Ave.

"There really weren't any arguments and he thought she had gone to bed," said Craig Police Lt. John Forgay.

Ron Wyatt, the 48-year-old Craig man who suffered a gunshot wound to the chest, was still listed in stable condition Monday morning at The Memorial Hospital.

Wyatt told police Moore had left for bed "for a few minutes" before firing shots from a hallway in the couple's trailer home, according to court documents.

A .357 Tarus handgun was used in the incident, which occurred at about 7:22 p.m.

Moore told police the two had been out drinking prior to the incident. Court documents further allege that Wyatt had said Moore was "upset" after a discussion over moving to Craig after living in Arizona.

Police Friday said they continued to look at alcohol's possible role in the incident, as well as allegations

of abuse made by Moore

during interviews.

"I did something really stupid," Moore allegedly stated.

Moore was arrested without incident at a neighboring trailer home roughly 30 minutes after the alleged shooting.

Wyatt was found wounded by police at a separate trailer unit about 20 feet from the couple's home.

Moore is being held on $250,000 bond at the Moffat County Jail and faces multiple charges including attempted first-degree murder and first-degree assault.

Her case will be reviewed tomorrow at 3 p.m. in Moffat County Court by Judge Mary Lynne James.
