A man was sentenced Tuesday to 14 years in prison for shooting another man in a parking lot dispute at a Walmart in Lakewood.
Kile Joshua Chaca, 22, was convicted last month by a Jefferson County jury of attempted second-degree murder and first-degree assault, according to the district attorney’s office.
On Aug. 25, 2019, Chaca shot the 33-year-old victim five times during a parking lot road rage incident, according to a news release.
The shooting Chaca was convicted of happened at 440 Wadsworth Blvd., where a separate shooting, this one fatal, happened Friday.
Steven Scott Hargis, 27, of Lakewood, was shot dead Friday morning as he sat in his car. The suspect in Hargis’ death, 46-year-old Matthew Lyvon Paul, was shot dead by Lakewood officers in an exchange of gunfire a few blocks away and a short time later, police said.
On Aug. 23, a pair of teen brothers — 18-year-old Damian Wikoff and 17-year-old Dillon Wikoff — were shot dead in the parking lot of a Lakewood Walmart at 7455 W. Colfax Ave., according to police. A 17-year-old boy and 16-year-old boy have been arrested as suspects in the double shooting.
