Bomb Suspect Shuts Down Area Road in Hours Standoff
A section of 32 Road was shut down during a multiple-hour standoff with a bomb suspect.
During a traffic stop near Haliburton on 32 Road, a Grand Junction Police Officer drew his firearm on the occupant of the vehicle. There isn't any information what caused the officer to pull his weapon.
While the officer was holding the suspect at gunpoint, the suspect informed the officer that he had a bomb in the vehicle.
This caused authorities to close 32 Road between D and C-1/2 Roads, which lasted for several hours.
Authorities used tear gas to take the suspect into custody around 2 a.m.
Police are still investigating the incident. We'll update when more information becomes available.
