(April 29) On Sunday, April 4th, 2021, at approximately 07:15 p.m., District 2 Patrol Officers responded to a shooting at East 35th Avenue and Helena Street.

Officers located an adult male who had been shot and was immediately transported to the hospital. This male suffered fatal injuries and was declared brain dead on April 7th, 2021. An autopsy was performed on April 12th by the Adams County Coroner where it was then officially ruled a homicide. This case is actively being investigated by our Major Crimes Homicide Unit and has not yet resulted in any arrests. Detectives have been able to determine that the incident and shooting happened after the victim left the Maverik Gas Station at North Chambers Road and East 38th Avenue. Detectives were able to identify three vehicles that were potentially involved in this homicide. Those vehicles, pictured below, are believed to be a Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8, a Volkswagen sedan, and a BWM 7 Series.

The identity of the deceased will be released by the Adams County Coroner's Office after a positive identification has been made, and his next-of-kin has been notified.

Anyone that has information about this case is asked to call Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720.913.7867. By using Crime Stoppers, tipsters can remain anonymous and be eligible for a REWARD of up to $2,000.
