Our prayers are with the family and community of an 18-year-old Denver yeshiva student who was shot and killed overnight in the front of Yeshiva Toras Chaim at 1555 Stuart Street.
Police report that the killing may have been part of a multi-jurisdictional crime spree. At this time, law enforcement authorities do not feel this homicide was an act targeted specifically at the Jewish community; however, all aspects of this string of crimes, including motive, remain under investigation. Suspects are still being sought by police. The student, from Cleveland, OH, was studying in Denver. JEWISHcolorado’s Regional Safety & Security Initiative advisor is diligently working with law enforcement to assist the community.
