Bureau of Indian Affairs Officer Shot in Colorado

April 13, 2018  | 

Two brothers from the Ute Mountain Ute Tribe are being detained at the La Plata County (CO) Jail without bond after fighting with a Bureau of Indian Affairs officer Sunday at a Towaoc residence.

Wendell Mills and Wambli Mills were arrested Sunday on probable cause for alleged assault with intent to commit murder in Indian Country, according to a criminal complaint filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Durango.

On Thursday, Bond was denied for both men.

The BIA officer and Wendell Mills were shot during the scuffle, according to a federal affidavit.

Both were both transported to Southwest Memorial Hospital and treated and released for leg wounds, Montezuma County Sheriff Steve Nowlin told the Durango Herald, who had deputies at the scene.
