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
