CSU student involved in shooting out on bond

CSU student Jordan Koehn is out on bond from Larimer County Jail after his involvement in a police shooting on Sept. 29.

Police were called to Koehn’s apartment complex for a welfare check on Sept. 29, and found Koehn highly intoxicated and suicidal. Koehn pointed a handgun first at himself and then at the officers, one of whom released his own firearm at Koehn and shot him four times in the chest. Koehn was taken to the Medical Center of the Rockies in critical medical condition.


The identity of the officer in the shooting was Officer Brinton Deighton, according to a Fort Collins Police press release.

On Monday, Oct. 21, Koehn was released from Medical Center of the Rockies and taken straight to Larimer County Jail. The same day, Koehn was bonded out on a personal bond for $5,000.

Koehn’s first court date was Thursday, Oct. 24. Koehn currently faces a class five felony menacing charge as well as a misdemeanor for using a weapon while intoxicated.

The Larimer County Defense Attorney’s office is currently investigating the shooting.

Officer Deighton is on paid administrative leave for the duration of the investigation, according to Fort Collins Police policy.
