Suspect on the run after 1 killed, 1 wounded in Lafayette shooting

Eduardo Espinoza Bencomo, 23, was killed in the early morning shooting Saturday.

LAFAYETTE, Colo. — Police are looking for a suspect after a man was killed and a woman was wounded in a shooting in a Lafayette apartment early Saturday. 

The Lafayette Police Department said officers were called to a report of a shooting at 750 S. Lafayette Dr., the address of the Copper Stone apartment complex, just after 3 a.m. 

A woman had contacted police about a disturbance in her apartment, police said. After that, a man shot her in what was possibly a domestic violence-related incident. 

When officers arrived, a man was found dead from multiple gunshot wounds. The victim was identified as 23-year-old Eduardo Espinoza Bencomo.

The woman was taken to the hospital and is recovering after surgery. 

Police have identified a suspect, 24-year-old Anthony Yohari Lopez Olguin, who they said may be armed and dangerous. Police said he was driving a white 2002 Chevrolet Tahoe with Colorado license plate BCK P98. The SUV was located by police Saturday evening.

Anyone who sees the suspect is asked to stay away from him and call Boulder County Communications at 303-441-4444 or their local law enforcement agency. 

Anyone with information can also contact Northern Colorado Crime Stoppers at info@nococrimestoppers.com or 1-800-222-8477. Tipsters can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward of up to $2,000. 

Calls to the Northern Colorado Crime Stoppers are not recorded and the phone does not have caller ID, according to the NoCoCrimestoppers website. A coordinator completes a tips information form, makes initial inquiries and passes the information along to investigators. 

A two-way dialogue system online also allows tipsters to come back and provide additional information and ask questions.  

A community board of directors meets regularly to evaluate arrests and determine reward amounts.
