Jeremy Webster is being charged with murder in the first degree after deliberation with intent, murder in the first-degree with extreme indifference, assault in the first degree, and criminal attempt to commit a class one felony. He is being held without bond and is due in court on Monday (Jun. 18).

Of the four people Webster opened fire on, three were a mother and her two sons. The 41-year-old mother and her 8-year-old son are in critical condition, while the mother’s 8-year-old son died as a result of his injuries. An adult male not related to the victims was also involved in the shooting. It is believed he will survive.

“When officers arrived on the scene, they found two adults and two children, suffering from gunshot wounds,” police said in the news release. “All four victims were shot in the parking lot of the business complex. There were no additional victims in any of the businesses.”

“An adult male who was shot is expected to survive his injuries. There is no relation between this victim and the below-listed victims,” police said. “An adult female and her two male children were also struck by gunfire. The female and one of the children sustained life-threatening injuries and are in critical condition. A juvenile male succumbed to his injuries.”

Police said the suspect didn’t know any of the victims, whose names have not yet been released.

According to the Denver Post, at least 20 people witnessed the shooting. One witness told The Post he “found a man suffering from multiple gunshot wounds and his clothes saturated in blood,” The man was “very coherent” and “very calm,” the witness said.

A reporter for Denver’s Contact 7 News obtained a search warrant in the case that provided more details into the shooting. It was revealed that Webster allegedly used a Glock 19 handgun in the shooting, and one of the mother’s sons (who was not injured in the shooting) described to police what happened, saying that his mom “had some sort of altercation near the intersection of Sheridan Blvd. and Turnpike Drive.”

The uninjured boy allegedly told police that Webster followed his mother’s car into the parking lot of the office building where the shootings happened and parked behind her car. A total of three children were in the car—two of them were shot; one of the two who were shot died.

The woman snapped a picture of Webster’s license plate and then exited the car with her children, and then an argument ensued, DenverChannel.com reported. As Webster and the woman argued, witnesses saw Webster pull out a handgun and shoot the woman “multiple times,” according to the warrant.

The woman fell to the ground, and Webster then turned to two of the boys and shot them both multiple times, the affidavit said. As Webster started to walk back toward his car, he turned around and shot one of the boys again as he was lying on the ground. The third child was able to run away from the scene without being shot.

After shooting the woman and her two sons, Webster made eye contact with a man in a different vehicle—a pickup truck—with his daughter. As Webster walked toward the man’s truck, he fired at it multiple times, hitting the man in both arms. He was able to put his truck in reverse and drive out of the parking lot. Thankfully, his daughter was not injured.

The woman’s 12-year-old son, who wasn’t injured in the shooting, was able to describe to police about the road rage incident and about the photo his mother took of the suspect’s license plate, which allowed officers to be able to track the vehicle to Webster, who was later apprehended on I-25 near Castle Rock.

9 News reporter Katie Eastman said she spoke with the owner of a car shop near the dentist office where the shooting occurred. The shop owner said he heard around seven or eight “deliberate” gunshots and watched a man run down the sidewalk. The shop owner said he saw police running after the man when they arrived on the scene.

Jeremy Webster reportedly waived his Miranda rights and admitted to the shooting. He also told police that he suffers from “mental health issues” and had just started a new prescription medication the day of the shooting.

Webster informed police that his new medication and the box for the handgun were at his house. The claims about his mental state and medication haven’t yet been independently verified beyond what the affidavit states.

Colorado Man Accused of Shooting 4 People, Killing a Child, in Dentist Office Parking Lot

A 23-year-old man was arrested on murder charges in connection with a deadly shooting Thursday (Jun. 14) in Westminster, Colorado.

Police have identified the accused shooter as Jeremy John Webster—who reportedly shot four people, including two children, in the parking lot outside of a Westminster, Colorado dentist’s office. According to police, road rage is believed to have been the motive for the shooting, which left a child dead.

Police said that the suspect didn’t know any of the victims, whose names have not yet been released.

“Through our investigation we have been able to determine the suspect did not know any of the victims and did not have a relationship with any of them. It appears as if this incident stemmed from a road rage,” wrote police.

Of the four victims, three were a mother and her two juvenile sons, one of which was killed.

A photo of Jeremy Webster has not been published because police are still conducting lineups with witnesses and have requested that media outlets refrain from publishing pictures of the suspect until he has been properly ID’d.

Jail records show that Jeremy Webster was booked into jail into the Adams County jail just after 1:30 a.m. early Friday morning (Jun. 15).

Webster is being charged with murder in the first degree after deliberation with intent, murder in the first-degree with extreme indifference, assault in the first degree, and criminal attempt to commit a class one felony. He is being held without bond and is due in court on Monday (Jun. 18).

Here’s what you need to know about Jeremy John Webster and the deadly shooting:

1The mass shooting happened outside a dental office in Westminster, Colorado.


Thursday’s shooting in Westminster, Colorado is the latest mass shooting to traumatize the United States. The first reports of the incident said that an active shooter was near a dental office, and the suspect was still at large for several hours.

Initial reports stated that the shooting occurred inside a dental office, but that later proved untrue. The shooting happened in the parking lot outside Comfort Dental at 80th and Sheridan.

23-year-old Jeremy John Webmaster from Colorado Springs was first identified as the shooter by CBS Denver the Friday morning after the shooting. Webster was arrested after a wildlife officer spotted his car, which was described by police as a black 4-door Toyota Corolla with a Colorado license plate (NPQ-091).

Children’s Dentistry of Westminster posted a statement on Facebook:

“We want to thank everyone in the community for the outpouring of support we received after the tragic and senseless incident that occurred today. We ask that you keep the victims in your thoughts and prayers. We would like to give a special thanks to the Westminster fire and police department who responded quickly and immediately took action. We are truly thankful for their efforts today. All Children’s Dentistry staff are now home and safe. Our office will be closed until Monday, June 18.”

2Jeremy Webster shot 4 people, including 2 children, one of whom died. The mother and brother of the child who died are in critical condition.


Jeremy Webster opened fire on four people, including two children, of whom died as a result of the shooting.

Of the four victims, three were a mother and her two sons (one of them died). The mother and her surviving son are in critical condition, and it is believed that the fourth shooting victim, an adult male not related to the other three victims, will also survive.

A heartbreaking scene occurred outside the dental office where the child was killed. A little girl wanted to bring flowers for the boy who died, and she and her grandfather “prayed in the parking lot,” according to Denver Post reporter Elizabeth Hernandez.

“When officers arrived on the scene, they found two adults and two children, suffering from gunshot wounds,” police said in the news release. “All four victims were shot in the parking lot of the business complex. There were no additional victims in any of the businesses.”

“An adult male who was shot is expected to survive his injuries. There is no relation between this victim and the below-listed victims,” police said. “An adult female and her two male children were also struck by gunfire. The female and one of the children sustained life-threatening injuries and are in critical condition. A juvenile male succumbed to his injuries.”

Police haven’t yet released a photo of the suspected shooter because they’re still conducting lineups with witnesses and have requested that the media refrain from publishing any pictures until the suspect has been properly ID’d.

CBS Denver posted this photo showing a man being taken into custody, but they blurred the man’s face:

The Westminster Police Department said they are also not releasing the identity of the victims at this time.

3 There were reportedly 20 witnesses to the shooting.


Police first indicated that they weren’t sure what the motive was for the crime, but they later revealed that they believed that a road rage incident drove the mayhem. They haven’t provided any additional details yet.

Police released a description of the suspect’s vehicle early on, writing on Twitter, “Vehicle of Interest: Black Toyota 4 door” with a Colorado license plate “NPQ 091.” Police added: “occupant(s) should be considered armed. Call 911 or WPD with info 303 658 4360.”

According to the Denver Post, at least 20 people witnessed the shooting, and it wasn’t clear whether it was targeted or random. A witness told The Post he “found a man suffering from multiple gunshot wounds and his clothes saturated in blood,” The man was “very coherent” and “very calm,” the witness said.

4One witness described hearing “deliberate gunshots.”

9 News reporter Katie Eastman said she spoke with the owner of a car shop near the dentist office where the shooting occurred. The shop owner said he heard around seven or eight “deliberate” gunshots and watched as a man ran down the sidewalk of Sheridan. The shop owner said he saw police running after the man when they arrived on the scene.

James Sisneros told 9 News that his daughter was locked inside the dentist’s office near where the shooting occurred while police investigated. He said he saw one of the bleeding victims and it “didn’t look very good.”

Teacher, Student Injured; Male Suspect in Custody

Police in Noblesville, Indiana have confirmed that a shooting at Noblesville Middle School has left two people—a teacher and a student—injured. The suspected gunman, a male student at the school, has been detained in connection with the shooting and is believed to have acted alone, police said. The identity and age of the shooter were not immediately released and a motive is unknown at this time.

Authorities said in a press conference that the first call reporting an active shooter situation came it at around 9:06 a.m. and officers responded immediately. One of the victims is an adult teacher and the other is a juvenile student, officials confirmed. Authorities also said that there was a “secondary threat” made at Noblesville High School and they have dispatched officers there as a precaution.

WSBT reporter Todd Connor reported via Twitter, “Police confirm two victims in school shooting at Noblesville West Middle School, a student and teacher. Male student in custody. Police presence at high school after another threat, as a precaution.”

According to CBS4 WTTV-TV, Fox59 evening news anchor Dan Spehler shared with reporters a firsthand account from a seventh grader who was in the Noblesville West Middle School classroom where the shooting occurred.

The seventh grader said a student walked into a science classroom and shot at someone. The science teacher immediately sprung into action by bravely tackling the gunman and swatting the gun away from him, possibly saving others from being injured. The student didn’t say whether or not the hero teacher was injured.

“I literally just spoke with a seventh grader who was in the room where this happened. Her mom came to pick her up this morning. She confirmed what I heard from another person who lives nearby that this was in a science classroom and that a science teacher may have been the one to literally tackle this kid and swat the gun away from him,” Spehler said.

“That is a firsthand account… She described him as a student, and that he shot at someone in the room, and one student was injured. And that this science teacher bravely swatted that gun away from the gunman’s hands, saving everyone else in that room.”

CBS4 WTTV-TV reported that Noblesville Middle was placed on lockdown immediately after the shooting and students were taken to nearby Noblesville High School to be picked up by their parents.

The two shooting victims—a juvenile student and an adult teacher—were taken to area hospitals. IU Health officials said the adult was being treated at Methodist Hospital while the teen was being treated at Riley Riley Hospital for Children. Officials didn’t have any information about the victims’ conditions.

It hasn’t been confirmed whether or not the science teacher who tackled the gunman was the one who was taken to the hospital.

Noblesville West Middle School is located about 27 miles north of Indianapolis.

Today’s shooting at Noblesville Middle marks the 23rd school shooting in the U.S. this year. Just one week ago, a 17-year-old student opened fire at Santa Fe High School in Texas, killing 10 and injuring several others.
