CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) - A man charged with fatally shooting one neighbor and injuring two others repeatedly disrupted his first court appearance, telling a judge “God’s got this.”

Kevin Lee Lyons, 46, faces charges of first-degree murder in the Monday afternoon attack on a residential street in suburban Denver. The Denver Post (https://dpo.st/1YdW22Q ) reports Lyons talked over a judge during a Tuesday hearing, where he was ordered jailed without bond.

Lyons’ public defender raised doubts about his mental health.

The Arapahoe County coroner says 65-year-old physician Kenneth Robert Atkinson died of two gunshots to the head and torso. Lyon’s wife, 44-year-old Elizabeth Lyons, and 46-year-old Laurie Juergens were also shot but expected to recover.

Neighbors say Lyons was married father who owned a construction company. Authorities haven’t said what led up to the violence.
