A passenger and a driver who allegedly pointed a gun at passing bicyclists and shot out the window of a car are in the Larimer County Detention Center on numerous charges.
Sunday evening, Larimer County Sheriff's deputies responded to reports of shots fired at a car on County Road 38E near Horsetooth Reservoir.
The driver of the car said he could see in his rearview mirror that a gun was pointed at his car.
At that moment his rear window glass shattered, scattering glass on and around his family.
A Horsetooth Park Ranger alerted deputies that the suspect car had entered the South Bay parking lot of the reservoir. Deputies arrested the passenger and driver, recovering an "authentic-looking" air-powered pistol that fires .188 caliber pellets.
The two arrested were: Tyson Alexander Shaffer, 29, of Ault on five counts of felony menacing, one count of criminal mischief, three counts of child abuse, six counts of reckless endangerment and parole revocation.
Also arrested was Aaron Olin Shaffer, 26, of Greeley, on five counts of felony menacing, three counts of child abuse, one count of criminal mischief, one count of prohibited use of a weapon, six counts of reckless endangerment and one count each of DUI and driving a vehicle while having a blood-alcohol count of .08 or more.
