According to a press release, it is believed that there was an argument between the adult and a group of teenagers, after alleged careless driving through the neighborhood. At some point during the argument, both the adult and teenager involved pulled out guns and fired shots at each other.

Holen, 36, worked for Greenwood Village police for five years before he resigned for personal reasons on Nov. 1.

Blitstein was a student at Vista PEAK Preparatory.
