Dominico Archuleta Identified As Union Station Bus Terminal Shooting Suspect

DENVER (CBS4) - Denver police identified the suspect they say shot one person at Denver's Union Station on Saturday night. Dominico Archuleta, 21, could face an attempted first degree attempted murder charge and aggravated assault.

Denver police previously identified an 18-year-old man, Andrew Marquez, as a second suspect, but shared new information at around 2 p.m. saying Marquez will not be charged and was released from custody.

Police told CBS4 one man was shot and taken to the hospital. His condition as of Sunday morning is unknown. Further details about the victim were not released.

Archuleta faced a judge on Sunday. Denver's Deputy District Attorney Michael Bailey told the judge Archuleta had a "ghost gun" and used it to shoot the victim in the abdomen. A ghost gun is untraceable.

Prosecutors say Archuleta had a large capacity magazine with 27 rounds and two additional magazines with him. One had 10 rounds inside; the second had 20.

Bailey says this shooting was likely gang-related.

"From what I understand, the actual incident happened around the bus terminals at Union Station," said Denver Police Spokesman Jay Casillas on Saturday night. "They (the suspects) fled on foot from there. They were caught near 20th and Little Raven."

A judge ruled Archuleta be held on a $100,000 cash only bond.

Details about the circumstances leading up to the shooting have not been released and are under investigation.

RTD officials tell CBS4 the shooting did not involve an RTD officer, bus driver or passengers.
