DENVER – Another suspect in the murder of a house in Monaco Parkway in Denver earlier this week has been arrested, police said Friday.
Temeka L’Nis Dudley, 44, faces charges of first-degree murder, aggravated robbery, first-degree burglary, second-degree burglary and increasing first-degree motor vehicle theft. Dudley was taken into custody Thursday near South Parker Road and East Eilef Avenue.
Another suspect, Joshua Hamm, 38, was arrested Monday after the incident occurred just after 11:20 p.m.
A third suspect was shot and killed during the incident when he tried to carjack three vehicles, the third of which he successfully went inside.
The homeowner was killed during the incident in the 900 block of northern Monaco. A neighbor reported that the landlord was attacked by three men.
On Tuesday afternoon, the medical examiner’s Denver office fee identified the slain homeowner as 64-year-old Mark Outman. A female relative of Outman was injured in the shooting and is in critical condition this week.
One suspect fled on foot when officers arrived and two others fled in a 2009 Black Honda Fit, Clark said. According to Denver Police Lt. Matt Clark, the suspect who fled on foot was arrested with a handgun nearby.
According to Clark, the suspect allegedly pointed a gun at the driver on the street and said officers had tracked down another suspect who had pulled out of a Honda at some point during the chase. Officers to fire on them.
According to Clark, it is not clear whether the suspect was hit at this time, but according to Clark, he kept running and threw a handgun. He then tried to defuse another vehicle before walking into the area.
According to Clark, before the suspect stopped two more vehicles on Monaco, another officer began walking behind him. Clark said he went in through the passenger side door of the vehicle, which had a woman inside. Moments later, the officer fired several rounds into the passenger side window, hitting the suspect, who later died at Denver Health Medical Center.
The medical examiner’s Denver office fee on Tuesday afternoon identified the man who was shot dead by police as Larry Hamm, 47, and said the cause of death was a gunshot wound.
Clark said investigators have not yet recovered another weapon from the vehicle, indicating that the suspect was killed and not armed at the time of the killing. He said there was no indication yet of any of the suspects firing on officers.
A bullet from the officer’s gun struck Bistander’s vehicle during the exchanges, but the round did not enter the passenger compartment, Clark said.
While the business was going on, the officers found the shot outman and his family members outside the house. Both were taken to hospital but Outman was pronounced dead.
In addition to the two handguns found from both suspects, a rifle was found outside Outman’s home, Clark said. He added that investigators believe the suspects were linked to recent residential thefts in the area.
No officers were injured in any of the incidents, and the woman who was carjacked suffered a glass shrapnel injury, Clark said.
Yesterday, three officers fired seven rounds during the ordeal, none of which involved police in previous shootings, Clark said.
