Denver police initially identified the second suspect as Tyler Demittri Wright, 32. Investigators later determined the suspect’s true identity was Mark Anthony Howard. Officers said Howard had gone to great lengths to assume the identity of Wright , who is not connected to the crime.

Johnson was fatally shot on Feb. 19 at the Pearl DTC Apartments, located in the 7500 block of East Technology Way. Officers were called to the scene around 2:30 a.m.
