DENVER (CBS4)– A man suspected of breaking into a woman’s home, stealing her car and firing shots at her has been formally charged.
Denver District Attorney Mitch Morrissey charged Marquise Jackson with first-degree burglary, attempted first-degree assault and aggravated motor vehicle theft.
The charges allege that on Monday about 2:30 a.m. Jackson broke into a home in the 7000 block of East Exposition Avenue, stole a number of household items and fired shots at the victim as he fled in the victim’s car.
Jackson, 18, was arrested later that same day at a nearby apartment complex after someone reported a burglary in progress.
Jackson remains in custody in the Denver Detention Center on a $25,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear in Denver County Court on Sept. 2 to be formally advised of the charges.
