AFFIDAVIT FOR ARREST WARRANT
The Affiant (hereafter referred to as "I"), Detective R. Christopher, is a duly commissioned
Police Officer for the City of Boulder, located in the County of Boulder, State of Colorado, beingduly sworn, deposes and states:I am currently assigned to the Detective Section of the Boulder Police Departmentand investigate crimes occurring within the City of Boulder, County of Boulder, and
State of Colorado. The associated Boulder Police Department case number is P12-6938.
Boulder Police Communications received a 911 call on 05/23/2012 at 0326 hours
from
425
College Avenue in the City of Boulder, County of Boulder and State ofColorado. The caller/homeowner Doreen Orion advised the dispatcher that a femaleintruder entered the residence and the female intruder was shot by Doreen’shusband/homeowner Timothy Justice. Doreen told the dispatcher the female intruder was
still inside their bedroom and that she was shot once in the side.I reviewed the reports completed by the patrol officers, sergeants and detectives and I
learned the following information:
The home at 425 College Avenue sits at the end of a cul-de-sac where College
Avenue ends to the north. The 400 block of College Ave is in a remote area and the roadis on a steep incline. There is a long paved driveway that ends at a detached two-cargarage and the house is set east of the driveway and garage. There are steep stairwaysthat lead down south and north from the front of the house. The south stairway leads to agate and that gate leads to the back yard area. There are paths that lead to the east aroundthe back of the house. The west and south sides of the property are enclosed by awrought-iron fence approximately 3’-4’ high. The east and north sides of the propertyare enclosed by a 6’-8’ chain linked fence. The property slopes down on all sides and theterrain surrounding the house is covered with rocks, trees and bushes. There is no accessto the house except down the driveway.The homeowners, Timothy Justice and Doreen Orion, were asleep in the bedroom.The exterior/interior lights were off and all of the blinds in the master bedroom wereclosed. One side of the bedroom French door was open for ventilation but the screen wasclosed. Doreen woke up because she heard noises outside the French doors. She thoughtthe noises were being made by an animal. Doreen woke up Timothy. They saw aglowing light through the sliding screen door and thought the light was coming from aflashlight. An unidentifiable person entered the bedroom through the sliding screen door.Timothy and Doreen told the person to leave numerous times, but the person neverretreated. Doreen told Timothy to "get the gun." Timothy retrieved a handgun from adrawer in a nightstand. There was a magazine seated in the handgun, but the chamberwas empty. Timothy cycled the action of the gun to chamber a round. Timothy couldsee the person holding the light and he fired one shot towards the light. The bullet hit theperson in the right side. The person was standing at the foot of the bed when the shot wasfired, approximately 6 feet away from Timothy.Timothy and Doreen did not know if there were multiple intruders and they werescared when the person entered their residence. They were afraid they were being robbed

and felt threatened. They reported that they each yelled at the intruder several times toleave the house and they even advised they had a gun. Once Timothy retrieved the gunfrom the nightstand he continued to tell the person he had a gun, but they continued toadvance towards the side of the bed where he was standing, approximately 11 feet inside
of the doorway. Timothy and Doreen were interviewed at the police department.
After
firing
one shot, Timothy turned on a bedroom light and they realized the
intruder was a female. Doreen used her cell phone and placed the 911 call. The femaleremained on the floor at the foot of the bed. The female appeared to be talking on a cellphone after she was shot. All three of them remained in the room until the officers andparamedics arrived. Timothy and Doreen reported that they did not know the female andhad never seen her before. The female was identified as Zoey Ripple, DOB 07/11/1990.
The female was transported to Boulder Community Hospital with a single gunshot wound
to the rear portion of her right hip. The injury is not life-threatening and she was
admitted to the hospital.
A search warrant was obtained for the home and executed on 05/23/2012. Severalitems were collected as evidence. Other than the unsecured bedroom screen door theother doors and windows of the home were secure. Timothy advised that he had been
working near the driveway and front porch area of the home on 05/22/2012 and the gate
at the end of the south stairway was closed during that time. That gate that leads to thebackyard always remains closed. The gate was later found to have been opened.I responded to Boulder Community Hospital at approximately 0500 hours on
05/23/2012 and I met with Zoey Ripple who was being treated in the emergency room.
Zoey was awake and coherent, but emotional. I waited with her as she was transferred toa room. I began interviewing Zoey at 0540 hours and she was advised of her rights. Sheconfirmed that she had been drinking earlier in the evening but said no drugs wereinvolved. She was not administered any pain medication for her injury untilapproximately 0610 hours. Zoey appeared to understand the questions and she wouldstart to answer a question and then stop. Zoey told me she attended a house party earlierin the evening and told me she was with people that she knew. Zoey indicated sheremembered the general location where she was at. Prior to entering the home she was ata house that was a ’step up’ from their property. She remembered stepping down towardsthe bedroom and a bedroom door that was open.
I
asked her what if anything she said.
Zoey told me "the same thing I always say when I open a door - hello". She walked inand was very confused because there was shouting and yelling and then she was shot.Zoey felt she was with people she knew and she thought she was at a friend’s house. Shetold me she needed more time to process the situation.Detectives responded to her address at 829 Grandview Ave and notified herroommates of the incident. They spoke with several people throughout the day in anattempt to determine Zoey’s whereabouts prior to entering the home. Her acquaintancesconfirmed she had been drinking throughout the night. Adam Cribari attended a houseparty at
955
Grandview Ave and Zoey was there until he left at 2230 hours on
05/22/2012. Alicia Didio lives at
955
Grandview Ave #C and when she arrived home
from work at 2300 hours Zoey was still at the party. A group of them walked to TheGoose, 1301 Broadway at 2345 hours and stayed until bar close at 0145 hours on05/23/2012. Alicia last saw Zoey at 0200 hours when they stopped at a house party at1104 University Ave. Resident Kevin Whitiak and his friend Steve Fortunato confirmed
that Zoey was at the house sometime after 0200 hours and that she, stayed- for
