DENVER — A suspect accused in the deadly shooting of a woman in east Denver was arrested Friday, according to the Denver Police Department.
Charles Dorsey, 39, was arrested within hours of the woman’s fatal shooting, which occurred approximately at 12:29 a.m. outside an apartment building on Xenia St. near the intersection with E. 14th Ave.
The victim – who was only identified as a 29-year-old woman – died later in the hospital.
Police said the shooting is being investigated as domestic-violence related homicide, “as it appears the suspect and victim were known to each other and involved in a relationship,” police said in a news release Friday.
Dorsey is being held at the Denver Jail on investigation of first-degree murder. Final determination of charges will be done by the Denver District Attorney’s Office.
