TWO CHARGED IN SHOOTING AT 7-ELEVEN STORE
Two men have been charged in the Sunday shooting death of a 39-yearold man outside a 7-Eleven near the state Capitol, and a third suspect was arrested Thursday.
Aurora police arrested Ru Shawn Bykei Wharton at around 11 p.m. Thursday.
Police had already arrested David Houston, 25, and Keondre Neblett, 17, on Monday in connection to the killing early Sunday of Justin Slyter outside the 7-Eleven on East Colfax Avenue near the state Capitol.
Denver District Attorney Beth McCann on Thursday formally charged Houston and Neblett with one count of first-degree felony murder and one count of robbery. Neblett is being charged as an adult.
Slyter, 39, was shot outside the store early Sunday as he attempted to recover his wallet, which had been stolen during a fight in the store’s parking lot.
