Truck stolen during Commerce City homicide recovered

A man was shot and killed during a robbery in front of a home on Leyden Street early Monday.

COMMERCE CITY, Colo. — A pickup truck that was taken early Monday during a homicide in Commerce City has been located but no suspects have been identified or arrested in the case.

At about 2:10 a.m., on July 25 Commerce City Police Department (CCPD) officers were called to the 5400 block of Leyden Street for a reported shooting and found a man who had been shot.

The man was transported to an area hospital where he died from his injuries.

Police believe the victim was shot during a robbery that happened in front of a home. Three suspects arrived in a dark-colored sedan and confronted the two victims, according to police.

After shooting one of the victims, the suspects stole a 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 truck with a lift kit that belonged to the victims.

That truck was recovered later that same day but CCPD did not say where it was found.
