According to a tweet from JCSO, the victim was walking in the 10200 block of West Powers Avenue, west of Littleton, at around 8:30 p.m. when the passenger of a red Toyota sedan with black wheels got out of the car, pointed a gun at the victim and demanded that all of their belongings be handed over.

Little information about the suspects has been released. JCSO said the one with the gun is described as Hispanic, 15-17 years old and wearing a yellow shirt and black pants. The driver was described as a Hispanic male, possibly a teenager. There was also a teenage girl in the car.
