The victim of Friday night's shooting at Timberglen Apartments was James Calvin Pogline, who died Saturday afternoon at The Memorial Hospital after doctors removed him from life support, Moffat County Coroner Owen Grant said.

Pogline, 32, suffered a gunshot wound to the head, Grant said. He was pronounced dead at approximately 1:15 p.m. Grant was unsure if the victim had been shot more than once. The body was taken to Grant Mortuary awaiting transport to Golden for an autopsy.

Pogline, 32, had recently been in and out of jail on numerous charges. He was arrested Oct. 11 in connection with an Oct. 3 altercation at Timberglen Apartments. Police charged him with punching a 16-year-old male. At the time of his arrest, Pogline had been out of jail on $25,000 bail.

Pogline previously was in jail on charges stemming from an April 20 case in which he allegedly possessed a gram or less of methamphetamine and violated bond conditions from previous cases -- both felonies. The original bond was set at $100,000, but a judge reduced it to $25,000.

In a press release, police reported that officers took a 16-year-old male into custody in connection with the shooting investigation. The juvenile is being held on "immigration issues" and has been detained on a charge of possession of a dangerous weapon. Octavio "Alex" Chavez, 20, was also taken into custody on an unrelated outstanding warrant.

Investigators did not return numerous phone messages Saturday. The press release did not address whether the 16-year-old in custody is the same individual who was involved in the altercation with Pogline on Oct. 3. Nor did the press release indicate where officers detained the two males.

Shortly before 8 p.m. Friday, Craig police officers responded to a 911 call of a shooting at 3591 Douglas St., Apartment B23. The police press release says Pogline was a resident of the apartment, but Jackie Urie, who manages Timberglen Apartments said Pogline was not on the official list of renters.

Urie said she had Pogline served with a trespass order barring him from coming on to the apartment complex property after he was booked into jail most recently.

The Colorado Bureau of Investigation had a van parked in front of Building B19-24 Saturday afternoon. The Craig Police Department, the Moffat County Sheriff's Office, the Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Custom Enforcement, the CBI and the 14th Judicial District Attorney's Office are cooperating in a joint investigation of Pogline's death.
