Man ‘confesses‘ to killing a 13-year-boy in front of his mother during horrific road rage shooting spree at dentist‘s office that also left her and his eight-year-old brother in critical condition

What started as an ordinary trip to the dentist‘s office turned into tragedy when a 13-year-old boy was killed in front of his mother during a road rage shooting spree. 

Meghan Bigelow, 41, had just made it to the Denver office with her three sons Vaughn, 13, Cooper, 12, and Asa, eight, when a man shot them multiple times. 

Vaughn was killed and Bigelow and Asa remain hospitalized. Cooper was able to run away during the incident without injury.

Jeremy Webster, 23, has confessed to the killings, according to police. He faces 20 charges, including first-degree murder. 

Bigelow and Webster got into an argument on a busy street corner as she drove her children to the dentist around 3pm last Thursday.

Authorities said Webster then followed Bigelow for a mile and parked behind her car in the lot for Children‘s Dentistry. 

Webster and Bigelow began to argue before he allegedly pulled out a handgun and shot her multiple times, according to the . 

After she fell to the ground he fired several shots at Vaughn and Asa. 

Witnesses said Webster walked away and then turned around to shoot Vaughn again as the teen laid on the ground.   

Before he fled the scene, Webster made eye with John Gale, who was in a pickup truck with his nine-year-old daughter.

Webster allegedly fired into the truck and Gale was hit in both of his arms. The father then threw his truck in reserve and fled with his daughter, who was not harmed. 

Gale has since been treated for his injuries and was released from the hospital. 

Cooper was able to inform police that his mother had taken a picture of Webster‘s license plate before the shooting

Cooper was able to inform police that his mother had taken a picture of Webster‘s license plate before the shooting. 

Webster was arrested three hours after the incident on Interstate 25 on the way to his home in Colorado Springs. 

He told police that he had mental health issues and had started taking a new prescription medication that day, according to an affidavit. 

Police said Webster ‘eventually admitted that he was the one who shot Meghan, both of her children, and John Gale‘. 

Webster‘s charges include first degree murder with extreme indifference, three counts of attempted first-degree murder, three counts of first-degree assault with a deadly weapon, and five counts of violent crime causing serious bodily injury. 

He was denied bail and is being held at the Adams County Detention Facility. Webster will be held without bond until his preliminary hearing on July 17. 

Bigelow had to go through multiple surgeries after the shooting and both she and Asa spent multiple days in the ICU. 

Both have now been moved to specialty care units and are preparing for rehabilitation. 

A campaign has since been created for the family and has raised more than $175,000 in the last week.
