   Coltin Clark, the Fort Lupton resident wanted in a connection to an attempted-murder investigation, is behind bars in the Weld County Jail. 

Weld County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Joe Moylan said Clark turned himself into a Weld County Sheriff’s Office deputy and a Fort Lupton police officer at 5 a.m. Oct. 13 at the Fort Lupton Police Department. He was transferred to the Weld County Jail and booked at 7:10 a.m. Clark remains in jail without bond pending his first appearance in court. 

Deputies were looking for Clark since a weekend shooting in the 7100 block of Henry Street in Aristocrat Acres, which is northeast of Fort Lupton. The shooting took place in front of a residence and may have stemmed from a money dispute among family members.

Moylan said when deputies arrived, they found a gunshot victim in front of the residence. The person, whose name wasn’t released, had a minor gunshot wound. Clark, 28, and his unidentified girlfriend left the area in a truck. lUpon arrival, deputies found one man who had sustained a minor gunshot wound. Clark, 28, fled the scene in a truck with his girlfriend. Deputies found the truck and impounded it.

Moylan said Weld County detectives secured a no-bond arrest warrant for Clark. He could face several charges, including attempted first-degree murder and second-degree assault. It’s up to the Weld County District Attorney’s Office to decide on formal charges.

The investigation was continuing.
