Fort Morgan, CO –  25-year-old Fort Morgan man died Wednesday of gunshot injuries suffered Tuesday evening in the parking lot of the local McDonald’s restaurant.

Police responded about 6:10 p.m. Tuesday to a call of a shooting in the parking lot of the restaurant at Main Street and Riverview Avenue. Officers found Bornmann in a parked car with a gunshot wound to the head.

Bornmann was shot inside the vehicle, Fort Morgan Police Chief Keith Kuretich said.

“There’s no reason to believe otherwise at this point,” Kuretich said.

He was immediately taken to Colorado Plains Medical Center in Fort Morgan and later flown to Denver in critical condition, Kuretich said.

Bornmann was shot with a small-caliber handgun, but Kuretich could not disclose exactly where the gun was found at the scene or to whom it belonged.

“We can’t say whose it was,” he said. “It takes time to track down the registration of a weapon.” Kuretich also could not say whether the gunshot was self-inflicted.

“An autopsy will be conducted to determine the absolute cause of death as well as the manner in which the death was caused,” the chief said. “Any death involving a weapon is considered suspicious until we can confirm the manner of death. It could go anywhere from violent, or a homicide, to suicide to an accidental discharge. We need to determine that nothing criminal was involved.”

A juvenile female and two other adult males were in the car when police were called, Kuretich said, but the officers made no arrests. The three passengers were interviewed and released, he said, and no other parties were directly involved. More on Fort Morgan Times
