No one injured, arrest made in drive-by shooting

A drive-by shooting was reported to the Garfield County Sheriff’s Office at around 4:20 p.m. Tuesday. Nobody was hurt, but less than an hour later, a man was arrested by Silt police.

Jose Caraveo-Perez, 23, was arrested on charges of attempted first-degree assault, reckless endangerment and felony menacing.

The shooting happened near Elite Drywall, located just south of Glenwood Springs near Buffalo Valley at 3762 Highway 82, Garfield County Undersheriff Jim Sears said.



“Apparently he did shoot toward at least one person,” Sears said.

Soon after the call, Sears was among many deputies actively searching for the suspect.



The alleged shooter was described over the police radio as a 5-foot, 9-inch Hispanic man wearing a black baseball cap and jeans. He was reportedly driving a white pickup truck with a chrome tool box.

“Nobody got shot,” Sears said. “It looks like the guy had the gun up in the air and was shooting.”

At the request of one of the Elite Drywall workers, Glenwood Springs police were asked to assist the sheriff’s office by checking the home of the worker’s family at a residence on Laurel Street. The family members were fine, Sears said.

A deputy on the scene at Elite Drywall said the shooting was considered a continuing investigation and said he couldn’t release any additional information.

At 4:50 p.m., Silt police found the truck parked and attempted to apprehend the suspect from an apartment complex there.

“He came out the door, ran around and went back inside. Then he got arrested,” Sears said. “We took a guy into custody in Silt and they’ll be taking him into jail.”
