Four charged in connection to the shooting death of a 17-year-old in Wheat Ridge

Four teens accused of fatally shooting a 17-year-old in Wheat Ridge have been charged with first-degree murder, according to the Jefferson County District Attorney’s Office.

The four were arrested earlier this month in connection with the killing of Nimijah Pimentel on April 13 in Panorama Park, months after another 17-year-old was arrested and charged in the case. Wheat Ridge police found Pimentel lying on the ground with a gunshot wound near 33rd Avenue and Chase Street where he was pronounced dead, according to the DA’s office.

Sincere Trujillo, 18, and Esteban Lucero, 19, were charged with 14 counts, including first-degree murder, according to the DA’s Office. Two juveniles were also arrested and charged. They will not be publicly named unless they are later charged as adults.

Their co-defendant, 17-year-old Julian Santos Campos, was arrested April 13 and charged as an adult also with 14 counts, including first-degree murder.

All are being held without bond.
