MAN SENTENCED FOR SHOOTUP OF POLICE COMMAND POST
A man charged in May in connection with shots fired at a Denver Police Department command post set up in southwest Denver was sentenced today in Denver District Court.
Kairo Alejandres-Vizcaino (dob: 05-14-1996) pleaded guilty in September to one count of attempted murder-extreme indifference (F2) and was sentenced per the stipulated plea agreement to 25 years in prison.
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.
