Law Enforcement - Arrest Made GUN

CBI Investigating Officer-Involved Shooting

A Saguache County man faces charges after threatening law enforcement with a firearm, and was shot just after 9:00 a.m., February 12.

Saguache County Sheriff’s Office deputies, with assistance from a Colorado State Patrol trooper, were called to a home outside of the town of Moffat on a call involving a man with a gun on Sunday morning.

At the home, the SCSO deputies and the CSP trooper identified themselves as law enforcement when contacting the man, who was inside the home.

Jason Ingalsbe, 45, began yelling and left the residence with a handgun, and pointed the weapon at the deputies. Two deputies fired at Ingalsbe, possibly wounding him. Ingalsbe was transported to the San Luis Valley Regional Medical Center where he was treated and released for a gunshot wound.

Ingalsbe was later booked into the Saguache County Jail on charges of Attempted First Degree Assault and Felony Menacing. He is being held on $75,000 dollar bond.

Two SCSO deputies were placed on administrative leave by Saguache County Sheriff Dan Warwick, per the policy of the sheriff’s office. The names of the deputies have not been released.

The Colorado Bureau of Investigation has been requested to lead the investigation, and is working in cooperation with the CSP, SCSO and the 12th Judicial District Attorney’s Office.
