MAN CHARGED WITH ATTEMPTED MURDER IN SHOOTUP OF
POLICE COMMAND POST PLEADS GUILTY
A man charged in May in connection with shots fired at a Denver Police Department command post set up in southwest Denver has pleaded guilty in Denver District Court.
Kairo Alejandres-Vizcaino (dob: 05-14-1996) pleaded guilty yesterday to one count of attempted murder-extreme indifference (F2), with a stipulated 25-year prison sentence. He was originally charged with six counts of attempted murder-extreme indifference (F2), and one count of vehicular eluding (F4).
On May 5, 2018, Vizcaino shot into the DPD Command Post located at S. Federal Boulevard and W. Arkansas Avenue. There were officers inside when the shots were fired. When a pursuit of the defendant was initiated, Vizcaino attempted to elude officers, running a stop sign and crashing into a police vehicle, after which he was arrested. A semi-automatic handgun was found in the defendant’s vehicle.
A sentencing hearing is scheduled for October 26, 2018, at 8:30 a.m. in courtroom 5D.
