Jury can't reach decision on most serious charge related to bowling alley shooting

A man was shot and wounded at the bowling alley on Kimmer Drive in early 2018.

LONE TREE, Colo. — A Douglas County jury this week returned a partial verdict against a man charged in connection with a 2018 shooting at Lone Tree bowling alley.

Peter Le was charged with three counts including:

  • Attempted second-degree murder
  • First-degree assault
  • Felony menacing

The jury could not reach an agreement on the attempted murder charge and a mistrial was declared for that count only. Jurors found Le guilty on both of the other counts and a sentencing hearing is set for Dec. 9.

As of now, court records indicate that Le will be retried on the attempted murder charge early next year.

A warrant was issued for Le after police identified as a person seen driving off from the bowling alley after the shooting in a dark-colored BMW SUV. 

Le is currently set for a pre-trial hearing on Dec. 19 related to the attempted murder charge and has a trial set for early January 2023.
