New Details On Pueblo Cab Driver Death Investigation

By  | 

A Fort Carson soldier has been named as a suspect in the October shooting death of a Pueblo taxi driver.

One-hundred seventy dollars. That's the amount of money David Chance was carrying when he was fatally shot in his cab on October 30th.

Police believe the five suspects were just trying to rob Chance, but they panicked after shooting him, and ran off without his wallet.

The suspected shooter is 22-year-old Fort Carson solider Olin Ferrier.

The suspected getaway driver is the grandson of Pueblo's District Attorney's chief investigator, 24-year old Matthew John Koncilja.

The other suspects are 19-year-old Maximo Ramos, 16-year-old Raymond Terrones, and 17-year-old Daniel Montoya.

Because of Koncilja's connection to the D.A.'s office in Pueblo, the El Paso county D.A.'s office will prosecute the cases.

The other suspects are being held at the Pueblo County Detention Center.

"They were probably destined for prison. Too bad Dave happened to step in their path," says fellow cab driver, Ron Hopkins.

A preliminary hearing is set for March 6th. Fellow cab drivers who worked with Chance say they plan to attend.
