Police investigate several homes struck by bullets in Cobblestone Ranch over three-week period

Immediate Release

Over the past three weeks, Castle Rock Police have investigated 3 reports of bullets striking homes in the Cobblestone Ranch subdivision of Northeast Castle Rock. The initial report was received on Dec. 14 when a resident on Lynch Lane reported hearing a loud banging noise in their home, later finding damage consistent with a bullet. 

Police have received two additional calls from residents in the Cobblestone Ranch subdivision since the Dec. 14 report, all with similar complaints. The most recent incident happened earlier today. A resident who lives on Esmeralda Drive arrived home around 2 p.m. and found a bullet had gone through his garage door, landing just inside on the ground. Police also were called to Blue Water Circle on Dec. 16 after a resident there had heard a gunshot and then what sounded like a projectile passing nearby.

“These are obviously very concerning incidents for our community as well as the Police Department,” said Castle Rock Police Chief Jack Cauley. “We are fortunate these incidents have only resulted in property damage and that nobody has been seriously injured.”

Castle Rock Police have canvassed the area in an attempt to isolate the location where the bullets are coming from. At this time, Police do not believe these incidents are intentional. 

Castle Rock Police ask if you have any information on where the gunfire is coming from to contact them immediately at 303-663-6100. Police also ask that if you live in the subdivision and have damage consistent with a bullet causing damage to your property, please notify them at 720-733-3517 or by email at CrimeTips@CRgov.com.
