COLORADO SPRINGS- An arrest was made in the killing of a 38-year-old man who was shot in the 2100 block of Roundtop Drive earlier in August.
Officers arrested 31-year-old Davin Carrera of Colorado Springs on a First Degree Murder charge Wednesday afternoon. This was shortly after the coroner’s office released the identity of the man shot and killed.
38-year-old Michael Dewayne Booker of Colorado Springs was found dead outside of a car at 3:30 a.m. on August 16., police said. Officers were responding to a shots fired call and confirmed Booker was dead at the scene.
