One man was arrested in connection to a shooting that occurred earlier this month that left one person dead and five wounded.
Dexter Martinez, 24, was arrested and is currently being held on investigation of murder in the first degree and five counts of investigation of attempted murder in the first degree.
The shooting occurred on November 1 on the 1400 block of Verbena St. near East Colfax Ave, “one of the city’s hotspots” according to Major Crimes Denver Police Commander Matt Clark.
According to Clark, several suspects were driving north on Verbena when they stopped, exited their vehicle and opened fire at a group of people standing near the intersection at East Colfax. More than six gun shots were reported.
Allen Dawkins, 31, was fatally shot in the incident, according to the Denver Office of the Medical Examiner.
A motive behind the shooting wasn’t immediately released. It’s also unclear whether Martinez has an attorney to speak on his behalf. Police said the investigation is ongoing.
