After barricading himself inside an Arvada home for multiple hours, a homicide suspect was taken into police custody.
According to the Adams County Sheriff’s Office, Tomas Perez-Gonzalez, 31, is being investigated for a homicide at the Primrose Motel in Denver on June 11.
On Thursday night, deputies located a black sedan at the Valli-Hi Motel that they tied to the initial incident, authorities say.
Officials say they worked to contact the suspect who fled the parking lot and struck multiple police vehicles in the process.
A police chase began and came to an end near West 54th Avenue and Harlan Street. That’s when Perez-Gonzalez left the vehicle on foot and eventually hid in a family member’s residence in the 6200 block of West 53rd Avenue in Arvada, Adams County Sheriff’s Office say.
That’s when a shelter-in-place order was issued for the area as law enforcement established a perimeter, eventually taking Tomas without issue.
The shooting occurred June 11 at Primrose Motel on Federal Boulevard around 4:15 p.m. Authorities say they found a man in a vehicle with a gunshot wound to the head, who later died in the hospital.
