    Hot Sulphur Springs — Grand County Coroner Brenda Bock identified the victim of a Riverside Hotel shooting as Joshua Stevens, 31, of Coral, Mich.

    Bock, who earlier Tuesday said the man died of gunshot wounds, said an autopsy will be performed at 11 a.m. on Wednesday to make official the cause and manner of the man's death.

    Shortly before midnight on April 1, Grand County Deputy District Attorney Heather Stein of the 14th Judicial District placed a 9-1-1 call to the Grand County Sheriff's Office reporting a stranger at her front door at the Riverside property. The man was “behaving erratically and causing a disturbance,” according to a press release from the Colorado Bureau of Investigation.

    •  They've ID'd the guy (10+ / 0-)

      He was from Michigan, had been in the area about a week looking for work. No idea so far what he was doing on the DA's porch, or breaking into the home. There is a possibility  he thought he was at a hotel since the building was one until recently.

      He did have a criminal record, although not an extensive one apparently.

      In 2008, Stevens was convicted in Florida of fleeing police in a speeding car and served a year in jail, according to court records.

      In 2002, he pleaded guilty to misdemeanor retail fraud in Ionia County, Michigan, and was sentenced to 75 days in jail, court records said.
