Suspect in Erie Barricade Situation Facing Attempted Murder Charge
The Erie man who got into a standoff with police after a reported domestic violence incident over the weekend is now facing attempted murder and assault charges.
Jerome Bornn, 46, is facing charges of attempted first-degree murder after deliberation, first-degree assault, violation of a protection order, and two counts of second-degree assault.
According to a release from Erie police, officers responded to a home on the 1500 block of Bain Drive at about 1:30 a.m. Dec. 29, and found a person who had sustained injuries related to an assault, while Bornn had barricaded himself inside the home.
Erie police called for assistance from a Boulder County and Boulder Police Department SWAT team, who eventually took Bornn into custody and cleared the home shortly before 7:30 a.m.
Both Bornn and the victim were taken to a hospital, and police believe the incident was domestic in nature.
The victim remains in the hospital, recovering. Bornn, who appeared to have self-inflicted injuries, was also taken to the hospital but was later released and was booked into the Boulder County Jail Tuesday morning on a warrant.
Bornn has previous arrests in Colorado for sexual assault, kidnapping, false imprisonment, harassment, felony menacing theft, disorderly conduct and providing false information.
He already has two pending cases in Boulder County, one for third-degree assault and criminal mischief, and another for retaliation against a victim or witness, extortion and third-degree assault.
