Denver police investigation continues into homicides on South Broadway

Posted

Denver police are still investigating the Aug. 9 deaths of three homeless people found dead of gunshot wounds just north of the Interstate 25 overpass on South Broadway and East Ohio Avenue.

As of Aug. 28, there had been no updates on arrests or suspects, police spokesman Doug Schepman said.

The police department has asked the public for any information regarding the shooting at 765 S. Broadway of Nicole “Nikki” Boston, 28; Jerome “Rome” Coronado, 39; and Chris “Little Cowboy” Zamudio, 45.

Report any information to Metro Crime Stoppers at 720-913-7867 or DPD at 720-913-2000.

During a media briefing on Aug. 9, Joe Montoya, the division chief with Denver Police, said the department also received a call for a stabbing at about 4:30 a.m. off of Santa Fe Drive. The stabbing occurred about 500 feet away from the shooting. Police arrested Kyle Cuffe later that day as a suspect for the stabbing.

Police are investigating whether the two incidents are linked, but at this time have found no evidence to connect the two crimes.

Montoya said the police department would be stepping up security in the area. He added it would also be doing outreach to vulnerable populations like the homeless community, directing them to shelters and other resources.
