Jefferson County, CO. – Just after 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 16, JCSO deputies responded to a call referencing a burglary and shots fired in the 12000 block of West 9th Place. It was determined that a group of suspects forced entry into a home and stole items from the home. This appears to be a targeted attack and not a random burglary.
With assistance from Lakewood Police, three suspects were taken into custody on scene, and five firearms were recovered along with stolen property from the home. Two of the suspects are juveniles. The other is 19-year old Nyi Nyi Tun. He faces charges of 1st degree burglary and larceny theft.
Among the five firearms recovered from the young suspects, were ghost guns with no serial numbers and a suppressor. During the burglary, shots were fired. All indications show one of the suspects suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound. No one else was injured and the owners of the home were not there at the time.
Investigators are still looking for additional suspects who are associated with this crime and a silver-colored 4-door Honda Accord (2013-2015 model) with temporary tags. If you have any information that can help investigators, call our tip line at 303-271-5612. You can remain anonymous.
