1 facing charges in connection to shooting at Union Station bus terminal

DPD said two people were taken into custody near 20th and Little Raven streets, but one has been released from custody.

DENVER — One man is in custody after another man was shot at Union Station Saturday night.

According to the Denver Police Department (DPD), it happened around 6:40 p.m. in the bus terminal area. 

One person was taken to the hospital, where police describe his condition as stable. 

DPD said two people were taken into custody near 20th and Little Raven streets less than an hour later and are being held for investigation of the shooting. 

Police later announced that the two men were arrested in connection with the shooting. One of them has since been released from custody, but police said 21-year-old Dominico Archuleta is being held for investigation of aggravated assault and attempted first degree murder. 

According to a probable cause (PC) statement for Archuleta's arrest, surveillance video showed the victim standing in the terminal near two other men, including the suspect later identified as Archuleta.

The suspect is seen slowly walking about six feet from the victim, while the victim appeared to be walking slowly with his hands in or near his pockets, the PC statement says.

The suspect then produced a handgun that appeared to have an extended magazine, pointed it at the victim and fired a shot into his abdomen, according to the PC statement. A 9mm bullet casing was recovered at the scene, the PC statement says.

The suspect ran out of an adjacent door, while the other man slowly walked away inside the terminal, the PC statement says.

Around 7:21 p.m., the PC statement says officers located Archuleta in Confluence Park at 2250 15th St., who was wearing clothing that matched what the suspect was wearing in the surveillance video. 

Officers also discovered a Glock 19 9mm handgun in Archuleta's sweatshirt pocket, the PC statement says.
