03/04/17 Denver, CO – Gunfire erupted in North East Denver this evening across a several block area.  Nobody was reported hit in the incidents but one young couple had an exceptionally close call.  Numerous 911 reports of multiple gunshots being fired came in around 8PM on this date in the vicinity of E. 36th Ave. and N. Vine Street.  Police were busy blocking off intersections and investigating the shots fired in that neighborhood when a young couple driving their pickup truck was struck by bullets just south of there near Bruce Randolph and N. High Street.  The pickup was being driven by a 18 year old man  with his 19 year old girlfriend riding in the passenger seat.  According to the couple a man on foot emerged from the shadows and fired at their truck as they were driving to get a pizza.  Bullets shattered their passenger window and ripped just inches behind the young woman’s head punching a hole in her seat headrest.  The young man and woman were thankfully uninjured.  This reporter overheard a uniformed patrol cop tell the young woman that someone was looking over the couple this evening as the headrest bullet struck dangerously close to her.  Another neighbor named Jason told us that some residents reported hearing up to 40 gunshots during the shooting incidents including at least one really loud sound that he described as “Ka-Bam”!  No suspect info was made available to ColoradoNews1.com as of this posting.  Shane Anthony reporting AuroraNews1.com

“Crazy” guy accosts man at Denver ATM machine 02/26/17

02/26/17 Denver, CO – Around 2PM today Denver police were dispatched to what initially came in as a robbery in-progress near the intersection of S. Colorado Blvd. and E. Mexico Ave.  Upon arrival District 3 cops found a man pinned to the ground by at least one other man near an ATM machine and the officers had to sort out the scene.  According to a man at the scene named “Mark” here’s what transpired: Mark was trying to use the ATM at the Chase bank when a man who was acting what he described as “crazy” approached him and asked for money.  When Mark refused the request, the man became aggressive and held up both of his hands in fists as if to start a fight and he asked again for money.  That’s when Mark decided enough was enough and he took the “crazy acting” guy to the ground and pinned him there until the DPD cavalry arrived.  Mark was uninjured in the incident but the “crazy guy” did receive a scratch on his head during the scuffle and he subsequently took an ambulance ride to the hospital.  I talked with Mark after the excitement as he once again used the ATM to finish the deposit he had been trying to make in the first place. He seemed unfazed by the whole Pro Wrestling ordeal as he wandered away with his ATM deposit receipt in hand.  Shane Anthony reporting ColoradoNews1.com

02/25/17 Denver, CO – Denver District 4 cops responded to the 1800 block of S.

02/18/17 Denver, CO – An overnight disturbance in southeast Denver brought several District 3 cops to the 400 block of S. Galena Way near the Denver-Aurora border on this date.  Denver 911 received multiple calls apparently stemming from the same incident around 12:45AM today.  The emergency calls included a report of a disturbance, an auto into a building, and possible shots fired.  When this reporter arrived on the scene I observed several officers and firefighters surveying ground level damage to a multi-story apartment building.  Cops were taping off a large scene that included both the damaged building and a passenger car that was damaged as well.  No other information about the incident was made available to ColoradoNews1.com at the scene.  It is not known to us at this time who drove into the building or exactly what car they were driving at the time.  Shane Anthony reporting ColoradoNews1.com

DPD Air-1 and other agencies nail armed suspect in Arvada 02/17/17

02/17/17 Arvada, CO – For the second night in a row a long nighttime airborne surveillance by Denver police helicopter unit “Air-1” has nabbed a dangerous criminal suspect.  This time the operation began in Denver District 4 with a sharp-eyed patrol cop calling in a description of a wanted green GMC Envoy which he had spotted.  The car had been “BOLO’d” (Be-On-The-Look-Out) the day before for previously running from the Denver cops.  Once again, (just as was the case last night), the cops on the ground and Air-1 showed great patience, restraint and determination as they shadowed the dangerous suspect vehicle around west Denver, downtown, Lakewood, Wheat Ridge and finally into Arvada.  The surveillance which had started around 11:45PM ended just over an hour later  at 12:53AM when the suspect exited his car and reportedly urinated in the parking lot of an apartment complex located in the 6400 block of Welch Court in Arvada.  Multiple ground troops from Denver, Arvada and other agencies rushed in to pounce (like a cat on a mouse) on the unsuspecting driver.  The man then briefly ran from the cops, tossing a gun to the side, and was quickly taken into police custody without further incident.  The gun was recovered by the officers at the scene and several passengers in his car were detained as well.  FYI criminals, you can run from “Air-1” but its pretty darned tough to hide!  Great work again Air-1 and all officers concerned!  Also kudos to all the 911 dispatchers who helped coordinate tonight’s apprehension.  Shane Anthony reporting ColoradoNews1.com

Denver PD Helicopter Air-1 aids in arrest on I-225 02/16/17

02/16/17 Aurora, CO – Breaking News 1:12AM – A lengthy airborne police surveillance this evening has led to an arrest of at least 1 subject on I-225 in Aurora.  The vehicle was wanted by Broomfield Police for striking a Broomfield cop car and was spotted about an hour ago in Denver District 4.  Air-1, the helicopter support unit of the Denver Police Department picked up the car in southwest Denver and followed it discreetly in the dark of the night for an extended period of time.  At one point in time the vehicle, which traveled many miles around Metro Denver, was actively pursued on the ground by at least one outside police agency.  The car may have struck a second police car during its evening of lawlessness according to scanner traffic.  At 12:50AM the car became disabled in the southbound lanes of I-225 just south of I-70 and 2 occupants bailed out on foot.  Aurora PD, Denver PD and numerous other law enforcement units closed in on the bad guys and snatched them up without incident in a neighborhood just west of I-255 and south of I-70.  Hats off to all the cops concerned for keeping the Public safe on this one and still getting the crooks.  Special kudos to “Air-1” for yet another exceptional job of airborne law enforcement this evening.  Shane Anthony reporting ColoradoNews1.com
