ALAMOSA, Colo. — A man has been arrested on numerous charges, including attempted second-degree homicide, in connection to a shooting Thursday night on Main Street in Alamosa.

James Marshall, 27, was arrested around 8:40 p.m. and, according to the city, also faces charges of:

  • First-degree assault
  • Reckless endangerment
  • Felony menacing
  • Criminal mischief
  • Illegal discharge of a firearm
  • Prohibited use of weapons.

Just before 6 p.m. on June 4, Alamosa Police responded to Main Street and State Avenue for a reported shooting. 

Officers located the victim in a vehicle with a gunshot wound at 2nd Street and Richardson Avenue. Police told our news partners KRDO in Colorado Springs that the man was shot through his car window by a man on the sidewalk. 

The victim, identified as Danny Pruitt of Canon City was initially treated at San Luis Valley Health and later flown to UCHealth Memorial Hospital in Colorado Springs for further treatment. As of late Thursday, there was no update on his condition.

The Alamosa County Sheriff's Office, in a Facebook post, said Marshall posted $60,000 bond on June 5.

The Sheriff's Office said Marshall's bond was originally set at $50,000. Marshall appealed for a bond reduction from a judge, but the judge denied the request, according to the Sheriff's Office.

The judge then increased Marshall's bond to $60,000 after deeming that to be the right amount after looking at the charges against Marshall, according to the Sheriff's Office.

Alamosa is located about 235 driving miles from Denver along Highway 160 in the San Luis Valley of southern Colorado.
