Isolated Incident at Country Jam

MESA COUNTY, Colo - At 5:42pm, a 37-year old male suffered what we believe to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the stomach. The preliminary investigation indicates it may have been accidental.

This incident occurred in the campground. There is no additional threat at this time. This is not an active shooter situation. Law enforcement immediately responded to the incident and has the area and individuals involved in the incident contained at this time.

The victim was transported to St. Mary’s hospital via ambulance.

We would like to remind festival-goers that there are NO weapons allowed on the Country Jam Ranch premises, this includes campsites.

Safety is our number one priority. Remember, if you see something suspicious, say something. Call 911.

(Note: a previous version incorrectly reported his age. He is 37, not 30.)
