UPDATE: Woman shot killed in Denver area parking garage

By  | 

Police say a woman in her 20s was shot and killed in an apartment building garage in suburban Denver after an apparent struggle, and a person sought by police after the shooting has been found dead after a standoff with a SWAT team.

The woman has been identified as 25 year-old Emily Weikert. She was found Thursday morning at the Promenade Place Apartments in Greenwood Village near the Denver Tech Center.

KMGH-TV in Denver reports SWAT team officers then went to an apartment looking for 51-year-old Robert Lewis, man described as a person of interest in the shooting.

After a three-hour standoff, they entered to find Lewis dead with a gunshot wound to the head Thursday evening. KMGH reports he was recently fired after allegations he had harassed Weikert at work.

Police have not called Lewis a suspect in Weikert's death, but say he can't be ruled out at this time.

Weikert and Lewis worked at CoBank in Greenwood Village, which specializes in agribusiness lending.
