Arrest Made In King Street Shooting

By  | 

The suspect in a fatal shooting last month was arrested during a traffic stop in Wyoming.

Preston Deangelo Johnson was arrested in Cheyenne last week, but Springs police didn't announce his arrest until Thursday.

Police have linked Johnson to a shooting on King Street in Colorado Springs on March 19. An arrest warrant was issued last month, and carried out by Wyoming police during last week's traffic stop. Johnson will be charged with first-degree murder.

The victim in the shooting was 26-year-old Ivan Ortiz. Police say they found Ortiz dead inside an apartment.
