Greeley Police said someone called 911 on the morning of March 28 to report gunshots fired in an alley behind 1429 9th St. The caller reported there was a man down in the alley and a man running from the shooting scene. 

Officers found an unresponsive Calihua-Calihua in the alley with a gunshot wound to the head. He died at a hospital three days later. 

They found Lieby in a nearby parked car and pronounced him dead at the scene. 

Delgado was wanted for first-degree murder. Police said he fled to California immediately after the shooting.

Greeley Police detectives requested assistance from the U.S. Marshals Service, which helped with the investigation by checking addresses and conducting surveillance operations. Police said attempts to capture Delgado were unsuccessful. 

Greeley Police said detectives continued to work the case and followed up on tips and leads from across the country. One tip suggested that Delgado was still in California, and police asked the U.S. Marshals for help. The U.S. Marshals and Los Angeles Police Department officers set up surveillance on Delgado's last known location in Santa Monica.  

On Wednesday, officers took Delgado into custody without incident, and Greeley Police sent a detective to Los Angeles to question Delgado. He is currently in the Los Angeles County Jail awaiting extradition to Colorado. Police said when he returns to Colorado, he will be booked at the Weld County Jail on two counts of first-degree murder.
