GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) - The teen being held in the shooting death of his ex-girlfriend allegedly told investigators that he killed her in Larimer County and then drove her body to his late grandfather’s unoccupied home in Collbran.

Eighteen-year-old Tanner Flores was arrested Friday in the ranching community about 300 miles from where he allegedly shot 18-year-old Ashley Doolittle. The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel (https://bit.ly/24OuVho), citing court documents, reports that Flores said he shot her twice because he was angry with her.

Flores’ father told a deputy that his .22-caliber revolver was missing from a gun locker and that Flores knew where the key was.

He is being held without bond and hasn’t been charged. His lawyer declined to comment Tuesday.

Doolittle was an accomplished horse rider and competitor and planned to attend Colorado State University this fall.
