LOVELAND, Colo. — Police are looking for at least three suspects after a shooting at a Loveland apartment complex on Friday that left one man dead and a teenager wounded. Police said the suspects appear to have no connection to the victims.

According to police, the suspects were in a white Dodge Ram 1500 with tinted windows when they pulled into the complex. Two young men got out of the truck and shot into the first victim's car, killing him.

Family members have identified the victim as 18-year-old Nasier Graham. He was described by his family as true, funny and always there for everyone who needed help.

Police say Graham was pulled out of his car and two suspects took off in the stolen car.

While trying to get away in Graham's car, the suspects skidded on ice and crashed into another car on the opposite side of the complex.

The driver of that car, a 16-year-old boy, got out and argued with the suspects who also shot him. The 16-year-old survived and was able to run away and call 911. He is in "stable" condition as of Saturday night.

"In total, there were at least 10 likely more shots fired, all from shoulder-mounted weapons. We're not aware of any handguns used," said Loveland Police Chief Timothy Duran during a news conference.

Those two suspects got back into the White Dodge Ram and the driver took off.


Police are looking for the suspects' truck, anyone with information should contact Loveland Police at 970-962-2032. Anyone wishing to remain anonymous may call Crime Stoppers at 970-221-6868 or click here.

“The quickest way to bring these individuals to justice is with all of your help. So please, take a look at this vehicle. Please share it with your friends. Please be very robust about connecting with us if you think there's a lead,” said Chief Duran.

At least one of the victims attended Mountain View High School. Principal Jane Harmon sent an email to parents Saturday, acknowledging the tragedy that "deeply impacts our MVHS community," assuring them that police do not have any safety concerns for the school campus.

Counselors will be available for students and staff members at MVHS on Monday, January 23 from 8:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
