Attempted murder charge for Grand Junction teens on shooting spree

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) - Two Grand Junction teens are accused of going on a five-day shooting spree in which they allegedly fired at homes, vehicles and a pedestrian.

The Daily Sentinel reports that 18-year-olds Aaron Wesley Plotner and Darian Tyler Kintz face multiple charges including attempted murder.

Authorities say Plotner used a stolen .22-calber rifle while Kintz was the driver for most of the incidents, which began Dec. 25. According to an affidavit, Plotner shot 29-year-old Matthew Daly on Dec. 29 as Daly was walking down a dark road. Plotner told police he was angry at Kintz for speeding away because Plotner wanted to watch the man die. Daly was shot in the back but survived.

A witness description helped police track Plotner and Kintz to an apartment complex, where they were arrested.
