Teen Charged with Attempted Murder in Broomfield Shooting
A teen accused of a Broomfield shooting that left a 17-year-old paralyzed has been charged with attempted first-degree murder.
Dave Young, 17th Judicial District Attorney, announced Thursday that Luis Gustavo Sanchez of Lakewood, also 17, had been charged.
Broomfield police responded to a call of shots fired in the area of West 131st Avenue and Grove Place on March 22.
A 17-year-old juvenile had been shot in the back and transported to Denver Health Medical Center, a news release from the DA’s office said. Another teen fled after being shot at.
Sanchez is charged as an adult with two counts of attempted first-degree murder, first degree assault, attempted first-degree assault and two counts of crime of violence, which are sentencing enhancers.
He was advised of the charges Thursday in Broomfield District Court. A preliminary hearing is set for 8:30 a.m. June 21.
He is free on $100,000 bond with GPS monitoring, monitored sobriety and a 9 p.m. curfew.
Broomfield police have said the case is ongoing, but they believe the shooting could have been drug-related.
