Three male suspects, who the media euphemistically is calling “teens,” randomly murdered a young woman in Denver, CO, on February 20th.
It was part of an extended crime spree using a stolen car. The evening before the murder, they went through a McDonald’s drive-thru. One of the suspects got out of the car with a gun and fired three shots into the restaurant’s windows.
Then they shot Pamela Cabriales, 32, in the head while she was in her car. Her windshield had eight bullet holes.
Afterward, the suspects led police on a high-speed chase, eventually wrecking the stolen car and fleeing on foot. SWAT teams quickly apprehended Neshan Johnson, an 18-year-old black male, and an unnamed 14-year-old male. They have both been charged with first-degree murder for the killing of Cabriales, as well as attempted murder for the shooting at McDonald’s. Police are working to identify a third suspect.
Earlier today, police announced that the unnamed 14-year-old, whose identity is classified because of his age, is the suspected gunman who killed Cabriales.
The victim leaves behind a six-year-old son.
