Teen charged in Hinkley High School parking lot shooting sentenced

Alejandro Carillo Hernandez, who was charged as an adult along with three other teenagers in connection with a 2021 shooting in the parking lot of Hinkley High School, was sentenced this week, according to a Thursday tweet from the District Attorney’s Office of the 18th Judicial District.

Carillo Hernandez, 19, was sentenced to five years in Pueblo’s Youthful Offender System, according to the district attorney’s office.

As long as Carillo Hernandez successfully completes the youthful offender program, he will avoid a 20-year prison sentence with the Department of Corrections, according to 18th Judicial District spokesman Eric Ross.

Carillo Hernandez was charged with four counts of attempted first-degree murder, a class two felony in Colorado. Other charges included counts of first-degree and second-degree assault and possession of a weapon on school grounds.

Carillo Hernandez — who was 17-years-old at the time of the shooting — was the fourth teen to be charged in connection with the Nov. 2021 shooting in the Aurora high school parking lot. Larry Renee Jefferson, Dalen Lenale Brewer and Diego Flores faced the same charges.

On Nov. 19, 2021, just before noon, surveillance cameras showed a white truck pulling into the school parking lot and stopping near another vehicle. Several people got out of both cars and began arguing. Shots were fired in the parking lot. Several students ran from the scene. The fight was later determined to be a confrontation between rival gang members.

Three students, two Hinkley students and one APS Avenues student, were injured in the shooting.
