BRIGHTON, Colo. (CBS4) – A 23-year-old Colorado Springs man suspected of shooting four people and killing one of them in Westminster last week has been formally charged with 11 counts.
Jeremy Webster has been charged with one count of first-degree murder after deliberation, three counts of attempted first-degree murder after deliberation, two counts of attempted first-degree murder with extreme indifference, four counts of first-degree assault, one count of attempted first-degree assault and nine counts of crime of violence, which are sentencing enhancers.
He was advised of the charges in Adams County District Court on Thursday morning. He is scheduled to appear in court for a preliminary hearing on July 17.
Webster allegedly confessed to police that he was struggling with mental health issues after he was arrested. Investigators said they suspect road rage led to the shooting on June 14.
Earlier this week an Adams County Court judge ruled that no bond be granted for Webster.
A friend of victim Meghan Bigelow created a GoFundMe page for her and her sons. One of her sons, a 13-year-old, was killed and she and another were critically hurt by the shooter. The suspect also fired at and injured a man in a different car.
A Chick-Fil-A announced on Facebook that they will be holding a fundraiser for the Bigelows on Saturday. The restaurant is located in the Larkridge shopping area in Thornton.
