The incident happened at 9:41 p.m. on Saturday when deputies were called to 3296 1/2 Lombardy Lane in Clifton for a report of gunshots. When Deputies arrived, they found an injured woman outside the residence. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

"An adult male suspect was taken into custody at the same location and he was transported to St. Mary's Hospital for an evaluation," the Mesa County Sheriff's Office said. The suspect was later transported to the Mesa County Detention Facility.
