LOVELAND, Colo. -- The Northern Colorado Shooting task force is set to release new information on Tuesday on a string of seemingly random shootings that started just more than a year ago.

A news conference will be held at noon at the Budweiser Events Center in Loveland. A spokesman said no arrests have been made, but new information will be released.

Four shootings last spring have been connected to each other by the task force: Milliken woman Cori Romero was shot on Interstate 25 on April 22, 2015; Windsor cyclist John Jacoby was shot and killed on May 18; a person was shot at near Denver Drive and East 18th Street in Loveland on June 3; and Bill Connole was shot and killed at East First Street and St. Louis Avenue in Loveland later on June 3.

It will be the first time since September that the task force has released information on the shootings.

"We actually got engaged in December and then found out we were expecting a little girl shortly after that," Romero said Monday of her now fiance Brandyn.

As the couple is set to welcome their first child in June, one thing remains a constant fear: The shooter is still out there.

"This person could just be walking around," Romero said. "I could've come in contact with this person. And that's a little unsettling, but to know that they're still working on it I think makes me feel more safe."

Romero said it breaks her heart to know that two other families are also waiting for justice.

"That was probably the most difficult thing," Romero said. "It's like, 'Why am I fine and somebody else wasn't as fortunate?'"

While Romero is anxious for new information from the shooting task force, she's focusing on the little girl on the way, another miracle after her recovery.

"You want to do everything right and hope that we raise her to be strong and independent," Romero said. "And also strong in her faith as well so, God forbid, she ever has to go through something like we've had to, that we know she'll be OK."
