The Adams County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a late-night shooting outside an unincorporated Adams County bar that injured an unidentified woman.

Adams County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Sgt. Paul Gregory said the incident began shortly after 2 a.m. March 22 at the Prime Sports Bar, 8101 North Washington St., after a disturbance took place inside the bar.

Gregory said an unidentified male suspect was escorted from the bar, got into his car and fired a single round from his car as he drove away. Gregory said that round struck an unidentified woman, who was standing outside the bar.

The woman, who suffered non-life threatening injuries to her leg, was taken to Denver General Hospital in an unknown condition. Her name was being withheld as of Monday as the investigation continues, Gregory said.

Gregory said a male suspect is in custody for the shooting but had not been arrested or charged as of press time Monday.

“I think we’re pretty well set with the suspect part of the investigation, so we’re not looking for public help or anything like that at this time,” Gregory said.

“It sounds like we’re pretty confident about who it is.”

Gregory said the name of the suspect as well as how he was identified is also being withheld, citing the ongoing investigation.
