A Denver police detective who was shot and killed last month died as a result of three separate bullet wounds. The autopsy results on Detective Donald Young show he was shot three times. Once in the head and twice in the left side of his body. Young and another officer John Bishop were in uniform providing security for a private party when both were shot at in the early morning hours on May 8th. Bishop survived the shooting. Authorities in Mexico arrested Raul Gomez–Garcia, the man believed to be responsible for the shooting. Gomez-Garcia is awaiting extradition to Denver where the District Attorney has agreed to charge him with second-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder. Mexico won't allow extradition if the penalty for a crime is death or life imprisonment.
