Man shot, killed on Colfax; 2 in custody

Denver Police say they've taken two men wanted in connection to a murder into custody. 39-year-old Justin Slyter was shot and killed outside the 7-Eleven.

DENVER - Denver Police say they’ve arrested two suspects after a man was shot and killed outside of a Capitol Hill convenience store just after midnight Sunday.

Authorities distributed photos of two people they believe were connected to the killing of 39-year-old Justin Slyter on Sunday. They have since been taken into custody.

Denver Police say Slyter was killed at the 7-Eleven on Colfax Avenue between Pearl and Pennsylvania streets. The suspects were seen driving away in a four-door sedan.

The suspect seen in surveillance photos wearing a grey hoodie has been identified as 25-year-old David Houston. The other was not identified because he is under 18, Denver Police said.

Investigators did not say what the motive may have been for the shooting, or if Slyter knew the suspects.

The Denver District Attorney’s Office has not released what charges the two suspects may face.
