BRIGHTON, Colo. (CBS4) – Brighton police have arrested all three suspects wanted for a shooting at a house party in February. The investigation stretched all the way to Massachusetts where Bobbie Blake, 18 of the Denver metro area, was arrested in Brewster.

He’s the last suspect arrested in the shooting that wounded five. That shooting happened at a home near Weld County Road 2 and Starr Lane on Feb. 29.

Officers found the five wounded people when they arrived on scene.

Based on witness statements, with the help of the public and a Denver area gang task force, Eugene Jaszcyk, 17 of Denver, was identified as a suspect in March.

Denver police, with assistance from the FBI’s Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Task Force, arrested him on March 10. Jaszcyk is charged as an adult with five counts of attempted first-degree murder.

During a search of his home, detectives found a number of firearms and evidence tying Peterson to several unsolved crimes in the metro area.
