Aurora Police investigating fatal shooting between employer and former employee

Police arrested Lloyd Clifford Love on suspicion of first-degree murder in the death of Marvin Johnson.

AURORA, Colo. — Police arrested a man who they say shot a former coworker after a dispute on Thursday night in central Aurora.

The Aurora Police Department (APD) said around 7 p.m. on Thursday they were called to a business in the 16800 block of Centretech Parkway because there was someone trespassing. 

Police said by the time they arrived at the scene, there had been a reported shooting on the property. The shooting stemmed from a dispute between an employer and a former employee, according to police.

A man, identified as Marvin James Johnson, 52, was found outside the business, suffering from a gunshot wound. He was later pronounced dead.

APD said Johnson was the owner of American Eagle Protective Services and that the suspect was recently fired from the company. 

Police said the suspect, identified as 35-year-old Lloyd Clifford Love of Aurora, had left the area before they arrived.

Officers set up a perimeter and eventually located a vehicle they believed the suspect was inside. The vehicle was stopped by officers, APD confirmed the suspect was a passenger in the car and arrested him without further incident. 

Love was arrested on suspicion of first-degree murder. 

Anyone who witnessed the shooting and did not speak to investigators is asked to contact Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-7867.
