DENVER — The man accused of shooting and killing a woman in northwest Denver earlier this month has been arrested, the Denver Police Department said Wednesday.
Elijah Lucero, 19, is being held for investigation of first-degree murder for a shooting that happened Sept. 7 near West 39th Avenue and North Bryant Street.
The area is in the Sunnyside neighborhood near its border with the Highland district.
Police said a 20-year-old female victim was taken to a hospital where she later died from her injuries.
Shortly after the shooting, police asked the public to look out for Lucero, who was considered armed and dangerous.
