Suspect in Centennial slaying arrested

Posted

The suspect in a fatal shooting outside a Centennial business has been arrested and is being held without bond on a first-degree murder charge at the Arapahoe County jail.

Authorities suspect Nicholas Locascio, 29, is the man who killed Justin Doe, 32, outside the Quality Electrical Distribution building, 7000 S. Jordan Road, shortly before 11 a.m. March 22.

The Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office announced Locascio's arrest in a news release late in the afternoon March 24. The suspect was already in custody after having been arrested near Arapahoe and Parker roads just hours after the shooting on unrelated drug charges, according to the release.

Doe sustained a gunshot wound to the head during "an interaction" in the QED parking lot, according to the Arapahoe County Coroner's Office. No possible motive for the shooting was given by the sheriff's office.

Doe's Facebook page said he was the operations manager at QED, which is a wholesaler of electrical supplies.

An employee who answered the phone at QED the day after the shooting but wouldn't give her name said Doe loved fishing, exploring the outdoors and spending time with his dog, Max.

No additional information was given by the sheriff's office, which cited that it was an "ongoing" investigation.
