Officials say a man shot in the direction of a construction worker and was arrested in Superior

On Monday, a 30-year-old man was arrested after officials said he had fired in the direction of construction workers in Superior.

There were no reports of injuries.

According to a press release from the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office, John Terrell Wilkins will face one count of first-degree attempted murder, four counts of threatening felony, eight counts of reckless endangerment, and one count of prohibiting the use of firearms.

According to the press release, at about 9:46 am on Monday, the Boulder County Regional Communications Center received a call from a person saying that someone was outside and may have opened fire near construction workers near the 2200 block of Buttercup Lane in Superior. The person who reported the incident said that they did not believe that someone had been shot and that the person had returned to their residence.

Representatives and other law enforcement officers who responded to the area began to close the road, set up a cordon around Wilkins’s residence, and began to try to contact him. At about this time, at 11:41 am, town officials issued a warning to residents via email, warning of “ongoing police activities” near the city center.

At approximately 1:30 pm, the delegates were able to contact him and arrest him without any accident or harm to him or themselves. He was taken to Boulder County Jail.

The town of Superior sent an email at around 2 pm to remind residents that the situation had been resolved and the road was reopening.
