As Anderson attempted to drive away during the armed robbery, Murdock allegedly fired his gun at Anderson.

Anderson showed CBS4 the vehicle he was driving, and how the bullet was lodged in the doorframe. The billet was stopped only three thin layers of metal away from hitting him in the head.

According to an arrest report obtained by CBS4’s Dillon Thomas, Murdock’s finger prints on Anderson’s car door are what lead to his arrest.

According to the arrest report, Murdock had a previous criminal history in the City of Aurora as well.
