Victims Identified in Lake Pueblo State Park Double Homicide

June 24, 2024 – CBI –  Pueblo, CO – The victims of a double homicide from early Friday morning at Lake Pueblo State Park have been identified. 29-year old Dustyn Courtney and 20 year old Trevion Lucas, both from Pueblo, were shot to death near Sailboard Beach just after midnight by an unidentified male suspect.

It appears the unknown suspect and Courtney got into an argument and a physical fight, (circumstances unknown) that resulted in the suspect pulling out a handgun and shooting Courtney. At this time it does not appear Trevion Lucas was part of the original dispute and the investigation into why he was shot is ongoing.

Witnesses indicate the suspect fled the park and remains on the run. The incident occurred on the north side of the lake, not far from the dam, where a group was fishing from the shore.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife and the Pueblo County Sheriff's Office are assisting the Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) which has taken over as the lead agency in the case.

CBI agents are continuing to conduct witness interviews in hopes of identifying the suspect.

Autopsies for both victims are scheduled tomorrow in Pueblo County.

Sailboat Beach reopened Saturday afternoon June 22nd. The rest of the park, it campgrounds and marinas remained open. 

Updates will be released as further information is developed.
