The charges allege that on Nov. 6, Davis, 30, shot Moody, 42, after a verbal exchange. Police say Moody was shot in the chest as he sat in his car in the 2100 block of N. Olive Street.

The victim managed to drive off after being shot but crashed about a block away into an unoccupied parked car. Firefighters who responded to the crash found him. Moody was rushed to Denver Health Medical Center but died of a gunshot wound.

Davis was arrested Nov. 8 and is scheduled to appear in court on Friday.
