Investigators believe the incident began as an argument between the suspect and Sanchez about Sanchez’s leg blocking the aisle, which ended with the suspect shooting Sanchez, according to police.
The suspect was taken into custody Thursday night on suspicion of first-degree murder. The Denver District Attorney’s Office will make the final determination on the potential filing of any charges.
