Capitol Hill shooter will be sentenced Friday
DENVER — The man who went on a shooting rampage in a Capitol Hill neighborhood two years ago will be sentenced Friday.
Shaun Tobelmann, 36, was found guilty in March of seven charges of attempted first-degree murder, seven charges of first-degree assault on a peace officer, one count of third-degree assault and 23 counts of unlawful discharge of a firearm.
Tobelmann is scheduled to appear in Denver District Court at 1:30 p.m. on Friday. He faces more than 100 years in prison.
The incident occurred on Feb. 21, 2013. Police responded around 2 a.m. to a domestic violent incident at the Gotham Apartments at 1196 Grant St. When contacted, Tobelmann barricaded himself inside a fifth-floor apartment and shot at police officers both inside the complex and out on the street for several hours, police said.
Although fired upon, not a single round was fired by Denver police officers, officials say.
Tobelmann surrendered shortly before 6 a.m. that morning. No injuries were reported in the incident.
