DENVER — Police have released photos of two vehicles that they said may be connected to a shooting that killed a shuttle van driver in northeast Denver a year ago Monday.
The shooting happened around 7:30 a.m. Dec. 19, 2021 in the area of East 40th Avenue and North Chambers Road. Denver police said the victim was driving a hotel shuttle van, tailing his own stolen vehicle, when he was shot in the chest. Police said no one else was in the van at the time.
The victim, 54-year-old Wesley Rosander, was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
The van crashed into a light pole after the driver was shot, police said.
His stolen vehicle was later found abandoned in the Montbello area, DPD said.
A year later, police are still looking for possible leads in the shooting. Monday, they released photos of a red pickup truck and a white sedan that they said may have been associated with the homicide.
