Second suspect arrested in the September shooting of a Littleton officer.

A second suspect has been arrested in connection to the shooting of a Littleton police officer.

Blanca Arrieta, 33, appeared Wednesday in Arapahoe County District Court where she was charged with one count of accessory to attempted first-degree murder and one count of accessory to a crime involving a felony, according to a Littleton Police Department news release. She was arrested on Oct. 7.

Rigoberto Valles Dominguez, 33, is suspected of shooting Officer David Snook multiple times — in the arm, leg and torso — on Sept. 20 as officers responded to a call of shots fired in the area of 183 W. Powers Ave., according to police. Another officer, Cpl. Jeff Farmer, suffered an injured knee during the incident.

Dominguez was arrested on Sept. 24 in Brighton, on suspicion of attempted first-degree murder.

Arrieta has been described by police as a “participant in aiding” Dominguez in the shooting. She is free on bond and has been ordered by the court to wear a GPS monitor and to comply with pre-trial services.

Snook, a 13-year veteran of the department who is married and a father of three young children, is recovering.
