Colorado Wal-Mart Shooter Makes First Court Appearance
The 47-year-old Colorado man who walked into a Wal-Mart in Thornton and shot and killed three people appeared in court Friday. Carlos Mareno, Victor Vasquez, and Pamela Marques.
First, if you are looking for this guy's name, you will not find it in this particular post. I firmly believe that a great majority of these types of criminals act out in search of attention that they are getting or have not gotten in their personal lives. It's been documented that mass shooters have stated that now my name will live on forever. So, no name and no photo.
Last Wednesday, this sheet metal worker casually strolled into a Walmart, about 10 miles north of Denver and simply opened fire. Killed were Carlos Mareno, 66. Victor Vasquez, 26. And Pamela Marques, 52.
According to Adams County District Attorney Dave Young, the defendant could be facing multiple other charges on top of the three first-degree murder charges. Those could include attempted murder charges for each innocent person inside the store at the time of the shooting.
As of now, the shooter is being held without bond. Authorities have not released any information about the type of weapon that was used. Formal charges are to be filed today (Nov. 6).
