Man Claims He Was Shot, Only Evidence Of Drug Use
Mesa County, Colo. -- Just after noon today, deputies were dispatched to the desert area around 27 1/4 Road and skirting the Grand Junction Regional Airport. The initial call into dispatch was for an adult male running toward the airport being chased and possibly shots fired at him.
Officers with the Grand Junction Police Department contacted the male, at the BLM Dispatch Center, located on the grounds of the airport. The man was identified as Jamie Sheeks, 28, of Grand Junction, and he had a cut on his leg, likely from the barbed wire fencing surrounding the airport that he is believed to have run through.
