Ara­pa­hoe County au­thor­i­ties have iden­ti­fied the 32year-old man fa­tally shot in the head Wed­nes­day morn­ing out­side of a whole­sale elec­tron­ics store in Cen­ten­nial.

Justin Lee Doe’s death has been ruled a homi­cide, ac­cord­ing to the county coroner, who said Thurs­day that Doe was killed dur­ing an “in­ter­ac­tion in the park­ing lot.”

The shoot­ing hap­pened at about 10:45 a.m. Wed­nes­day out­side of QED — also known as Qual­ity Elec­tri­cal Dis­tri­bu­tion — on the 7000 block of South Jor­dan Road. That’s just south­east of the East Ara­pa­hoe Road and Jor­dan Road in­ter­sec­tion.

Julie Brooks, a spokes­woman for the Ara­pa­hoe County Sheriff’s Of­fice, said in­ves­ti­ga­tors don’t know what prompted the slay­ing.

The sheriff ’s of­fice would not say if Doe worked at QED.

The county sheriff’s of­fice said it ini­tially re­sponded to the area af­ter re­ceiv­ing re­ports of gun­shots be­ing fired.

Au­thor­i­ties said a sus­pect in the shoot­ing “pos­si­bly left (the) area in an older white sedan,” but that the ve­hi­cle was later lo­cated and de­ter­mined to be un­re­lated to the case.

The sus­pect is de­scribed as a white man wear­ing a gray or white sleeve­less Tshirt, jeans and a black base­ball hat turned back­ward. He also has a large tat­too on his up­per right arm. Any­one with in­for­ma­tion on the case is asked to call the Ara­pa­hoe County Sheriff’s Of­fice.

No ar­rests have been an­nounced.

“We have some­body out there with a gun who just shot and killed some­one,” Brooks told re­porters on Wed­nes­day. “Ob­vi­ously we are con­cerned.”

She added: “It’s go­ing to be a lengthy in­ves­ti­ga­tion.”
