DENVER (AP) — The wife of a Colorado man killed in a shooting on Halloween says her husband saved her life by drawing the shooter's attention.

The Denver Post reports 32-year-old Jacob Clymer was killed in the daytime shooting in the Denver suburb of Aurora after he and Miranda Clymer had tried to sell an Xbox game console to a teen.

Miranda Clymer says they had met with the prospective buyer who had agreed to the purchase through Facebook.

She says the buyer pulled out a gun and told them to hand over the Xbox. Jacob Clymer pulled out his own gun, and the buyer fired multiple shots.

Aurora police arrested a 15-year-old boy, who appeared in juvenile court Wednesday. He is charged with two juvenile counts of first-degree murder.
