WESTMINSTER, Colo. (KDVR) -- Following a preliminary hearing on Monday, Jeremy Webster, already accused of murder in a deadly road rage shooting in 2018, will face two new charges and have to take a recorded sanity evaluation.

Webster is accused of shooting a family outside of a dentist’s office in June 2018. Vaughn Bigelow, 13, was killed. His mother, Meghan, and 7-year-old brother were critically wounded along with another bystander. Police said Webster shot the family after a road rage incident on Sheridan Boulevard. A third brother, Cooper Bigelow, survived physically uninjured. The additional attempted first-degree murder and crime of violence enhancer charges granted Monday are in relation to Cooper.

According to an investigator who testified Monday, an eyewitness recalls the shooter pointing a gun and firing three to five shots toward a boy running into the dentist office wearing a neon hoodie. The investigator said the witness believes that boy was Cooper Bigelow, KDVR reports.

A judge found probable cause for the added charges based on three witnesses’ testimonies at the hearing Monday.

Webster is now charged with a total of 22 counts, including first-degree murder, attempted murder and assault. A new court date to review the sanity evaluation is set for Sept. 1.
