Denver teen faces attempted murder charge in Montbello gang shooting

Denver prosecutors Tuesday charged an 18-year-old man with attempted murder in a suspected gang-motivated shooting on Thursday in Montbello that left a 43-year-old woman with a bullet in her back. The suspected shooter, Deonte Maitise Crews, is a documented member of the Piru Bloods street gang, according to an arrest affidavit. Several people in the group standing in the front yard of a house in the 4400 block of North Dillon Street were members of a rival Crips subsect, according to Denver police. Crews is accused of firing about nine rounds into the crowd just around 11:30 p.m. before fleeing on foot, according to a statement from the Denver District Attorney's Office. Officers caught up with Crews walking out of a nearby yard, the affidavit says. Crews remains in custody on $250,000 bond and next appears in court Thursday. Attempted first-degree murder is a Class 2 felony that typically carry a penalty of between eight and 24 years. First-degree assault, the second charge against Crews, is a Class 3 felony that carries a penalty of up to 12 years. Crews, who turned 18 in March, has no other offenses on his adult criminal record, according to Colorado Bureau of Investigation records.
