Original story:

Police are looking for an older model, black Ford Mustang after the driver allegedly almost hit a Mesa County Sheriff’s Deputy Saturday morning.

That’s according to a press release from the Grand Junction Police Department. It says after almost being hit, the deputy fired his gun and the car fled the scene. The press release does not say what the deputy was shooting at.

It happened at about 7:30 a.m. Saturday.

This after the sheriff’s office was investigating a suspicious incident that may have involved a wanted person and a black Mustang at 29 ½ Road and Patterson, according to the press release. The Mustang was then spotted near 29 Road and the I-70 overpass, that’s where the deputy tried to talk to the people in the car and was almost hit.

The deputy was not hurt, according to the press release.

The Critical Incident Response Team, made up of law enforcement from around the Grand Valley, and the Colorado Bureau of Investigation, is investigating the officer-involved shooting.

Police say if anyone has information about the black Mustang, call Crime Stoppers at 970-241-7867.
