Officials investigate shooting in Hot Sulphur Springs


— The victim of the shooting just before midnight Monday at the former Riverside Hotel is a 31-year-old male who is not from Grand County, according to Grand County coroner Brenda Bock, who is awaiting contact with family members before releasing more information.

Bock confirmed the man died of gunshot wounds, but she has yet to examine the body.

Shortly before midnight April 1, Grand County Deputy District Attorney Heather Stein, of the 14th Judicial District, placed a 911 call to the Grand County Sheriff's Office reporting a stranger at her front door at the Riverside property. The man was behaving erratically and causing a disturbance, according to a news release from the Colorado Bureau of Investigation.

The investigation revealed that the intruder pushed his way into the house and an altercation ensued, according to the release. It is thought that shots were fired during the altercation outside the Stein residence in the 500 block of Grand Avenue in Hot Sulphur Springs.

Stein's husband is Grand County Sheriff's Office Lt. John Stein.
