DENVER (KDVR) — Jordan Waddy, the suspect police were shooting at in LoDo last year when several people were injured, has again had his case continued.
Waddy, 21, was scheduled to appear in a Denver courtroom Monday to enter a plea on the charges he faces, which include three counts of possession of a weapon by a previous offender and one count of third-degree assault.
Around 1:30 a.m. on July 17, 2022, Waddy allegedly was part of an altercation at 20th and Larimer Street in Denver’s Lower Downtown entertainment district. When officers approached to break up the fight, Waddy allegedly made a motion and police suspected he had a gun. Police shot and injured Waddy. Six bystanders were also injured.
Officers recovered a loaded firearm from the scene.
The Denver District Attorney’s Office is reviewing whether the officer’s actions were legally justified in a separate investigation.
Waddy’s arraignment is now scheduled for April 21.
