AURORA, Colo. — A man is arrested in the death of a woman after a fight that sent him to the hospital.
Detectives say 24-year-old Danielle Griego was fighting with her boyfriend inside an apartment at East 14th Avenue and Lima Street Tuesday. They say she was shot and her boyfriend was suffering from a drug overdose.
“When our officers got there on that initial domestic violence call they were only able to talk to he r… our male suspect in this case was gone at the time,” says Sgt. Chris Amsler of the Aurora Police Department.
That was early in the morning on Tuesday. Then, Amsler says, police were called to the apartment again later Tuesday afternoon on a report of fighting between Danielle and her boyfriend. This time police found Danielle had been shot and the suspect had overdosed.
Witnesses told police the boyfriend shot Griego.
Officers are doing more interviews before releasing the suspect’s name.
