LOVELAND, Colo. — The 17-year-old killed in a Loveland shooting earlier this month has been identified by the Larimer County Coroner’s Office.

Aric Whaley was a Loveland resident. The coroner’s office said he died from a shotgun wound to the upper-left chest.

The shooting happened early on Sept. 4 in the 3000 block of North Duffield Avenue. By the time officers and paramedics arrived, Whaley was dead.

Gabriel Jesus Romero Ventura, 18, was arrested the same day of the shooting.

He was charged with manslaughter, first-degree assault and prohibited use of weapons. The latter charge is a misdemeanor, while the others are felonies.

Ventura and Whaley knew each other, but the Loveland Police Department did not say how.
