Intruder shot dead at home of Colo. officer

The suspect died of gunshot wounds to the torso after he tried to force his way into the deputy's homes

Associated Press

HOT SULPHUR SPRINGS, Colo. — Authorities in Colorado say a Michigan man who died after an altercation outside the home of a sheriff's deputy and a prosecutor was shot multiple times.

Grand County coroner's officials said Wednesday that 32-year-old Joshua Lee Stevens, of Coral, Mich., died of gunshot wounds to the torso.

Authorities say a deputy district attorney for Colorado's 14th Judicial District called 911 late Monday to report a stranger behaving erratically outside her home. Shots were fired after the person tried to force his way in.

The prosecutor and her husband, who is a sheriff's deputy, had minor injuries.

Stevens was believed to have been in town about a week, looking for work.

Authorities say there are no obvious ties to other recent shootings, including the death of Colorado's prisons chief.
