LAKEWOOD, Colo. -- A woman who was killed in a shooting at a West Colfax Avenue motel last week has been identified and a suspect is being sought, the Lakewood Police Department said Monday.

Officers responded to the Blue Sky Motel at 6205 W. Colfax Ave. about 9:30 p.m. Friday.

A 32-year-old woman, identified as Brittany Guern, was found suffering from an apparent gunshot wound.

Guern was taken to a hospital where she was later pronounced dead.

Witnesses told officers that three black men and one white man left the scene in different directions.

Asha Thompson

One suspect, identified as 32-year-old Asha Thompson, also known as "Ace," was seen with a gun in his hand, police said.

Thompson is wanted for first-degree murder, police said. He was last seen wearing a black hoodie or jacket, a black hat and camouflage pants.

Police said if anyone sees Thompson, who is considered to be armed and dangerous, they should not approach him and instead should call 911.
