A man opened fire, shooting at passing vehicles Sunday along a highway near the Gateway Canyons Resort and Spa in western Colorado. The gunfire hit at least one vehicle before security guards, deputies and police raced to the scene and stopped the shooter, Mesa County authorities said.
Mesa County sheriff’s deputies took a 54-year-old man into custody, said Megan Terlecky, spokeswoman for the sheriff.
“He has minor injuries. He was not shot,” Terlecky said.
“He was shooting at other vehicles. Shots were fired. At least one vehicle was hit.”
The shooting happened along Colorado 141. Security guards at Gateway Canyons, a luxury resort 55 miles southwest of Grand Junction, were first at the scene.
Nobody else was hurt.
