DENVER — A man has been sentenced to prison after being convicted of fatally shooting another man during an argument in Denver last year.
According to court documents, Arturo Villalobos, 41, was sentenced Thursday to 40 years in prison for the death of James Nixon, 41. Villalobos was found guilty of second-degree murder in December.
The shooting happened April 14 in the 300-block of South Eliot Street, which is in the Athmar Park neighborhood. Police said that Villalobos and Nixon knew each other and had gotten into an argument.
Nixon walked into an urgent care center around 6 p.m. that day with a gunshot wound to his stomach and was taken to a hospital, where he died two days later.
Days after the shooting, Denver Police arrested Villalobos with help from the Commerce City Police Department.
