Suspected intruder killed outside Colorado prosecutor's home

A Michigan man was fatally shot during an alteration outside the home of a Colorado prosecutor and sheriff's deputy.

KDVR.com reported that a deputy district attorney for Colorado's 14th Judicial District called 911 late Monday to report a stranger at her front door behaving erratically and causing a disturbance.

"The intruder pushed his way into the house and an altercation ensued. It is believed that shots were fired during this altercation outside the couple’s residence," said a statement obtained by the station from the Colorado Bureau of Investigation.

Coroner's officials said Tuesday that 32-year-old Joshua Lee Stevens of Coral, Mich., died in the shooting. He was believed to have been in town for about a week, looking for work.

The prosecutor and her husband, who is a Grand County sheriff's deputy, had minor injuries.

Authorities say there are no obvious ties to other recent shootings, including that of Colorado prisons chief Tom Clements.
