Northglenn shooting leaves man dead

Police said a man was shot to death near Fox Run Parkway and Fox Run Circle Wednesday afternoon.

NORTHGLENN, Colo. — Police are looking for a suspect in a deadly shooting in Northglenn Wednesday. 

The Northglenn Police Department said officers were called to a report of shots fired near Fox Run Parkway and Fox Run Circle at around 1:45 p.m. That's located northwest of Colorado Boulevard and East 104th Avenue. 

When officers got there, they found a man with gunshot wounds who had died. 

Witnesses told police they had seen that man driving a black Cadillac SUV with possible Wyoming plates. He picked up another man then did a U-turn, got out of the Cadillac and confronted a third man who was walking on the sidewalk. Police said the man who had been driving the Cadillac and the man on the sidewalk both showed handguns, and the Cadillac driver was shot several times.

The passenger in the Cadillac left toward West 104th Avenue and the shooter ran northbound from the scene, according to police. Officers set up a perimeter and searched the area, but did not find a suspect.

The victim was identified as 39-year-old Anthony Luis Romero.

A Code Red notification was sent out to the area, but it expired because police believed the suspect had left the area and there was no danger to the public.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call Officer Jeremy Mayns at 303-450-8970 or email jpmayns@northglenn.org.
