A 49-year-old woman is being held on $250,000 bond in the alleged shooting of her boyfriend Thursday night.

Sandra Moore faces multiple charges of attempted first-degree murder and first-degree assault in an ongoing investigation of a shooting incident involving 48-year-old Ron Wyatt.

At about 7:22 p.m., Craig police responded to the scene at 1679 Yampa Ave., where witnesses directed officers to a nearby residence at which Wyatt had sought help.

Wyatt — still conscious when officers arrived — suffered a gunshot wound to the chest and told at least one witness Moore had shot him, according to Craig police.

Craig police — assisted by Moffat County Sheriff’s deputies — found Moore in a separate, adjacent home and was arrested without incident.

Wyatt was listed in stable condition Friday morning at The Memorial Hospital.

Moore was advised this morning by Judge Mary Lynne James and is due back in Moffat County Court 3 p.m. Tuesday for a case status review.
