JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. (KDVR) — The Adams County Sheriff’s Office says a suspect wanted in connection to a Denver homicide was captured following a shelter-in-place Thursday night.
Tomas Perez-Gonzalez, 32, was holed up in a home, possibly with a relative, in the 6200 block of West 53rd Avenue, according to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office.
The Adams County Sheriff’s Office said a deputy was running plate numbers at the Valley Hi Motel just before 7:30 p.m. and ran the plates of a black sedan, which had an alert come up with a connection to a Denver homicide.
The driver of the sedan sped off, and police began to pursue. The chase ended near near West 52nd Avenue and Marshall Street, and the driver — a man dressed in black — fled on foot.
Arvada Police issued a shelter in place in the area and called the suspect “dangerous.”
The Denver Police Department’s helicopter and K9 officers, along with Arvada Police and Colorado State Patrol, were assisting.
Perez-Gonzalez was taken into custody early Friday morning without incident, according to the Adams County Sheriff’s Office.
