At about 5 p.m. on Tuesday, January 10, 2017 Brighton Police Officers responded to a shooting in the 300 blk of South 7th Avenue. They located a 32 year old Brighton female with a gunshot wound to the leg. The woman was alert and able to speak to the officers. The injury was non-life threatening. She was transported to an area hospital and kept overnight.
Officers also spoke to two males who were present when officers arrived. One of the males, Rodney Morales, was holding a .410 shotgun when officers entered the residence. Morales, a 43 year old Brighton resident, immediately dropped the shotgun when officers entered the residence.
Morales was booked into Adams County Detention Facility on charges of Attempted Second Degree Murder and Possession of a Defaced Firearm. Both charges are felonies. The charges are merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent until or unless proven guilty.
