Man charged with murder in Denver for shooting after dispute about children playing

A suspect has been charged with murder in Denver for a double shooting that started over a dispute about children playing in a yard.

Jason Arroyo, 33, has been charged with murder, attempted murder and menacing, according to the Denver District Attorney’s Office.

The charges stem from a Sept. 6 incident on West 35th Avenue, according to a probable cause statement in the case.

Arroyo threw water on children playing in a yard and when a dispute arose he went into a residence and returned with a gun, according to the statement.

Arroyo allegedly fired about six shots and two people were hit, the court document said.

Officers arrived on scene and the two victims were down on the ground suffering from gun shot wounds. Arroyo was spotted running in and out of properties in the 3500 block of Mariposa and 3600 block Osage streets. He was found inside a detached garage and taken into custody.

An advisement hearing in the case is scheduled on Friday.
