Suspect in shots fired arrested near Wadsworth Boulevard and Morrison Road

William Massey, 33, faces menacing charges after reportedly firing a long gun near an apartment complex, Jefferson County Sheriff's Office said.

JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. — The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office (JCSO) said a suspect faces charges after deputies responded to a report of a man firing a gun Monday morning in the area of Wadsworth Boulevard and Morrison Road.

The sheriff's office said it received 911 calls about 10 a.m. of a man with a long gun who was firing shots. 

When deputies arrived on scene, JCSO said they found a man walking in a field behind an apartment complex in the 7400 block of West Warren Circle. 

The man, identified as 33-year-old William Massey, dropped the gun when deputies approached him and was taken into custody without incident, JCSO said.

Massey faces three counts of felony menacing, according to the sheriff's office.

Witnesses reported hearing three shots, and JCSO said shell casings were found during the investigation.

There were no injuries or property damage reported, JCSO said, and investigators do not believe anyone else was involved.
