Suspect arrested in deadly Loveland carjacking

Nasier Graham, 18, was killed on Jan. 20. A 16-year-old was also shot and wounded.

LOVELAND, Colo. — A suspect is in custody in connection with a carjacking and shooting earlier this month that left an 18-year-old dead and a 16-year-old injured.

The Loveland Police Department announced the arrest Tuesday in connection with the Jan. 20 shooting in the area of 2500 E. 1st St. at the Brookstone Apartment Homes.

Around 10:15 p.m. that night, a white Dodge Ram pickup truck pulled into the parking lot of the apartments and stopped in front of a car occupied by 18-year-old Nasier Graham. Two people, described only as "two young men," got out of the Ram and fired shots, Loveland Police said.

Graham was removed from the car, and the two people who fired the shots got into his car and followed the Ram around the apartment complex, police said. According to the Larimer County coroner, Graham died of multiple gunshot wounds.

The driver of the carjacked car then slid on the ice and crashed into a parked car occupied by the 16-year-old victim. They got into an argument, and more shots were fired, injuring the 16-year-old, police said. The 16-year-old victim ran to an apartment and called 911, police said.  

Police said on Tuesday that a boy under 18 was arrested and that other "persons of interest" have been identified in the case. Police said earlier that they believed three people were involved.

Due to his age, the suspect's name is not being released. His next court appearance is set for Feb. 16.

The white Dodge Ram 1500 pickup, believed to be the vehicle used in the shooting, was recovered, according to police. They said it had not been reported stolen at the time of recovery.

Police continue to seek information regarding the case. Tipsters can contact their tip line at 970-962-2032.
