Rit­ter en­dorses Crow in con­gres­sional race.

For­mer Gov. Bill Rit­ter on Tues­day en­dorsed Ja­son Crow in the 6th Con­gres­sional District race, one of the big­gest names yet to take sides be­fore next year’s Demo­cratic pri­mary.

Crow, an at­tor­ney and Army vet­eran, in April an­nounced his bid for U.S. Rep. Mike Coff­man’s seat and has quickly po­si­tioned him­self as the man to beat for the Demo­cratic nom­i­na­tion, rais­ing $287,581 through June 30.

Crow faces Obama ad­min­is­tra­tion alum Levi Tille­mann and at­tor­ney David Aarestad. A fourth can­di­date, Gabriel McArthur, last month dropped out to run for sec­re­tary of state. The for­mer Bernie San­ders del­e­gate en­dorsed Tille­mann as he ex­ited the race.

Man miss­ing, pre­sumed dead af­ter rock div­ing in Green Moun­tain Reser­voir.

COUNTY» A SUM­MIT man who dove from a pop­u­lar div­ing rock into Green Moun­tain Reser­voir on Tues­day af­ter­noon did not sur­face, and a dive team is search­ing for him. Peo­ple who had seen the man dive into the wa­ter had searched for him, and Sum­mit County sher­iff’s deputies also searched the area, to no avail. The man, who was pre­sumed drowned, was not iden­ti­fied.

Sher­iff, coro­ner in­ves­ti­gat­ing hu­man re­mains near Gross Reser­voir.

A fish­er­man dis­cov­ered skele­tal re­mains Satur­day near Gross Reser­voir, and the Boul­der County Sher­iff’s Of­fice and Boul­der County coro­ner are look­ing into whether the re­mains be­long to Ry­der John­son, a Lafayette man who went miss­ing in Jan­uary 2016.

“It is in the same gen­eral area where Ry­der John­son’s car was found,’ sher­iff’s of­fice Cmdr. Mike Wag­ner said. “We don’t know if it is him.”

Wag­ner said that a man fish­ing off a trail near Gross Reser­voir found the bones, which ap­peared to have been scat­tered by wildlife.

Colorado sec­re­tary of state sends voter data to Trump elec­tion in­tegrity com­mis­sion.

The Colorado sec­re­tary of state’s of­fice on Tues­day sent voter data to the Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion’s elec­tion in­tegrity com­mis­sion af­ter weeks of con­tention.

The com­mis­sion was es­tab­lished by Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump in May and first asked Colorado for voter in­for­ma­tion June 28. It has been dogged by pri­vacy con­cerns and dis­trust, par­tic­u­larly af­ter Trump’s un­founded claims that mil­lions of peo­ple voted il­le­gally in 2016 and cost him the pop­u­lar vote.

About 5,300 Coloradans have with­drawn their voter reg­is­tra­tions since the panel re­quested voter in­for­ma­tion. There are more than 3.3 mil­lion ac­tive vot­ers in the state.

Two dead, two shot in melee in which po­lice came un­der fire.

Po­lice came un­der fire Mon­day night as they in­ves­ti­gated a shoot­ing in which two peo­ple were in­jured. A man and a woman in an ad­ja­cent home were later found shot to death in an ap­par­ent mur­der-sui­cide.

The names of the dead and in­jured have not been re­leased.

The po­lice of­fi­cers who came un­der fire were not in­jured.

Po­lice were called about gun­shots be­ing fired in the 3800 block of Vil­lage Road South at 8:51 p.m., ac­cord­ing to a po­lice re­port.

Po­lice were at­tend­ing to the two gun­shot vic­tims in one home when some­one in the ad­ja­cent home, 3835 Vil­lage Road, opened fire from a sec­ond-floor win­dow, the re­port said.
