Police on Sunday arrested a 32-year-old man in connection with a homicide near Denver’s Baker neighborhood.

Uriel Rios-Avila was arrested on investigation of first-degree murder, according to an arrest affidavit.

Police received a 911 call around 7:39 a.m. Sunday on reports of a shooting at the Sinclair gas station, 620 Santa Fe Drive. Responding officers found a man shot to death in the driver’s seat of a car parked at the gas station’s car wash, the court document states.
