Arvada barricaded suspect in custody, shelter-in-place order lifted

The Adams County Sherriff's Office said they have arrested Tomas Perez-Gonzalez who was barricaded in the 6200 block of West 53rd Avenue, Thursday night.

ARVADA, Colo. — Adams County Sherriff's Office (ACSO) deputies took a man into custody early Friday morning after a standoff forced a shelter-in-place order for residents near the 6200 block of West 53rd Avenue in Arvada.

32-year-old Tomas Perez-Gonzalez was taken into custody without incident, early Friday morning, according to a tweet from ACSO.

Arvada residents were asked to shelter in place, ACSO said Thursday, while they tried to arrest a man wanted for homicide. The shelter in place was lifted around midnight, early Friday morning.

Deputies said they ran plates on a car at the Valli-Hi Motel on Pecos Street at U.S. 36 and found it was connected to a homicide. When they approached the car, the man drove away, prompting a chase.

The chase led deputies all over the north metro area, ending up near West 53rd Avenue and Marshall Street in Arvada, according to ACSO. 

ACSO said Perez-Gonzalez was wanted in connection with a June 11 shooting at the Primrose Motel on Federal Boulevard.
