GREELEY, Colo. – On November 11, at approximately 5:41 PM, Greeley Police Officers were dispatched to a report of a shooting in the 1800 block of Montview Boulevard.  Officers were advised that a male was at the victim’s home and actively attempting to break into their house. 

The home was occupied by a 26-year-old female and a 24-year-old male. The male suspect was later identified as Guadalupe Balderas, a 26-year-old male.  As Balderas was allegedly attempting to kick open the door, the 24-year-old male was simultaneously trying to prevent him from entering. 

Balderas then allegedly fired several rounds into the house and the 24-year-old male returned fire with multiple rounds from inside the home.  The 24-year-old male victim was struck in the right arm and Balderas was struck in the abdomen. Balderas fled the scene immediately after the shooting.

The victim was transported to a local hospital for treatment and has since been released. A short time after the shooting, Balderas voluntarily entered a local hospital with a gunshot wound, prompting the hospital staff to call the Greeley Police Department to investigate.

Balderas was booked in for Attempted 1st Degree Murder Extreme Indifference, Attempted 1st Degree Murder after Deliberation, Attempted 1st Degree Burglary, 1st Degree Assault, Felony Menacing, and Criminal Mischief.
