The 9th Judicial District Attorney’s Office released new information about last months shooting of state Trooper Eugene Hofacker during a traffic stop in Glenwood Canyon. The DA determined no charges are warranted or will be filed against Trooper Gosnell for the death of Thomas Ornelas. Gosnell saved the life of his colleague by returning fire and killing the convicted murderer from Montrose. The DAs office says, the actions of Trooper Gosnell constituted self-defense and defense of others.
