There was a police shooting in Grand Junction Monday. 

Not many details have been released, but two officers were responding to a call to remove someone from a property on Grand Avenue when they made contact with someone in a car parked outside.  Shots were fired, and the man in the car was killed.  A gun was recovered from the vehicle.

All of this comes less than 24 hours after a police shooting in Montrose.  Two officers with the City of Montrose were called out to check on the welfare of a 42-year-old man.  His family made the request.

The victim of a shooting in Montrose has been issued a citation for false reporting to authorities.
