EDGEWATER, Colo. (CBS4) – The third suspect has been taken into custody in connection with a deadly shooting outside a restaurant in Edgewater last week.
The shooting happened last Thursday near 20th Avenue and Sheridan Boulevard. Andrew Jenicek, 27, was killed after he got out of his car in the parking lot to the west of Dunkin’ Donuts.
He suffered a single gunshot wound to the middle of his chest with no other visible signs of trauma. His wallet and cellphone were near his body.
According to the arrest affidavit, witnesses said the suspects went to “get some guy’s wallet” and he dropped it on the ground. When one of the suspects went to grab the wallet, Jenicek went for the gun and that’s when he was shot.
Jenicek’s family told CBS4 he was going to get his girlfriend’s dinner when he was shot.
Edgewater police obtained a warrant for first-degree murder, aggravated robbery and conspiracy to commit aggravated robbery for Devon Drizzt Howard, 20, on Monday. Police announced his arrest on Tuesday.
Police took two other suspects into custody, Caleb Joseph Vigil, 19, and Alicia Elena Valdez, 19, in the days after the shooting.
