PUEBLO, Colo. (KKTV) - Pueblo police say a teenager suspected in a homicide in a home on Pueblo's east side has turned himself in. The teen could be tried as an adult. Investigators believe the teen and the victim were affiliated with the same gang.
Officers identified 15-year-old Johnny Dennel as a suspect following the deadly shooting of 22-year-old Francisco Alcon on Sunday. 11 News does not normally identify juvenile suspects, but the Pueblo Police Department asked us to share the suspect's photo during their search for him earlier in the week.
On Wednesday, Pueblo police announced Dennel had turned himself in at about 5 p.m. Prosecutors are expected to make the request to have Dennel tried as an adult during a transfer hearing. A judge will have the final say on how the boy is charged.
