Man Sentenced to 24 Years Prison for his Role in Lakewood Shooting

Dominic Pacheco Donelson

Dominic Pacheco-Donelson, DOB: 9-30-94, appeared in Jefferson County District Court on November 5, 2018 where he was sentenced to prison for 24 years for his role in a shooting that occurred in Lakewood in April, 2018.


On April 4, 2018, Lakewood police were called to the Safeway at 14th and Garrison Streets in response to a victim with a gunshot wound. They found 24-year-old William Scott had a gunshot wound through his shoulder.


According to the arrest affidavit, Pacheco-Donelson and codefendants, Damon Porter and Yazmine Hunter, were in a stolen car when they followed Scott into the parking lot of his apartment complex. Pacheco-Donelson was driving. Porter and the Hunter approached Scott when he got out of his vehicle. Porter pointed a gun at him, and demanded his property. Porter grabbed Scott’s phone and  demanded his keys. Scott did not see the gun at first and refused to give Porter his keys. Porter shot him in the chest from two feet away. Porter and Hunter got back into the car and the trio left the area. Lakewood police agents identified, located, and arrested the men two days later. A warrant is outstanding for the arrest of Yazmine Hunter.


Pacheco-Donelson pled guilty to Aggravated Robbery (F3); Possession of a Weapon by a Previous Offender (F6); and one violent crime count.  This was his 6th felony conviction. He provided the gun used in the shooting and was on federal parole for gun trafficking at the time of the offense.


Damon Porter has been charged with Attempted Murder (F2) and other counts in this case and has a motions hearing set for November 9.
