Resident pleads in shooting case
April 26, 2017
A 24-year-old Whitehall resident pleaded guilty last week to a charge of providing false reports to law enforcement stemming from a self-inflicted shooting incident April 15 in Whitehall.
Frederick Webb made an appearance last week in Jefferson County Justice Court in Boulder. After pleading guilty to the misdemeanor charge, he was fined $285.
The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department had originally responded to the call of a shooting April 15 shortly after 11 p.m. at 601 E. Legion in Whitehall.
According to Jefferson County Sheriff Craig Doolittle, the investigation into the shooting uncovered the fact that Webb shot himself in the upper chest, but he falsely advised law enforcement another individual had shot him after stopping to speak with him to ask for directions to Twin Bridges.
