2 killed, 1 critically injured in Lamar shooting

Two people were killed and a third was critically injured in a shooting in an apartment in Lamar Saturday, the Colorado Bureau of Investigation said.

LAMAR, Colo. — A man accused of shooting three people, killing two and injuring one, at an apartment complex in the southeastern Colorado town of Lamar Saturday is dead, according to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation.

Investigators said the shooting happened just before 2 p.m. Saturday at the Lamar Apartments on Mullen Street. Two of the victims, 50-year-old Roy Bock and 58-year-old Loretta Rhoades, died at the scene. The third victim, an 18-year-old woman, was taken to a Denver-area hospital and remains in critical condition, CBI said.

Investigators said the suspect, 24-year-old Jourden White, took his own life after leading officers on a pursuit near Holly, Colorado later that day.

Investigators believe the suspect and victims knew each other, but are still working to determine the specifics of their relationships and the circumstances surrounding the shooting.
