    Jefferson County: Shooting at Tesla charging station leaves one dead, one in custody


    Authorities said one victim is dead after an altercation at a Tesla charging station in Jefferson County, Colorado Wednesday escalated into a fatal shooting.

    The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office said one male 33-year-old victim was deceased, and another man was in custody after a shooting in the 5500 block of W 20th Ave. in Edgewater.

    The victim was transported to the hospital, where he later died, police said. He was not identified.

    Jenny Fulton, a spokesperson for the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, said the shooting is being investigated as a homicide.
