Denver police have charged a woman with fatally shooting a fellow postal worker during an argument near her home.
Jenny Nguyen, 27, was charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of Jamal Zachary Thompson, 26.
Police responded to calls of shots fired and a vehicle crash at the intersection of 54th Avenue and Yampa Street at 12:10 a.m. Saturday.
Thompson was found by police in a wrecked Ford Fusion that had rolled into a field. He was deceased with a gunshot wound to the neck and "had been thrown about the interior of the vehicle," according to a police report obtained by CBS4.
Police found Nguyen's driver's license on the passenger seat of the car. Officers recovered 9mm shell casings on 54th Avenue. A homeowner there told police an angry Asian-American woman was driving the car a half hour earlier.
The man identified Nguyen as the angry female driver after police showed him the driver's license.
Thompson's mother told police her son and Nguyen had been in an on-again, off-again relationship.
Nguyen and Thompson were both employed by the US Postal Service but they worked at different locations, according to CBS4.
Police executed a search warrant at Nguyen's residence on Saturday morning near 54th and Tower Road.
Investigators recovered a disassembled 9mm handgun in a bedroom heater vent. The gun's barrel was missing. Recordings from the home's video surveillance camera had been deleted.
Thompson leaves behind a 4-year-old son. A GoFundMe account raised over $4,000 to help pay Thompson's funeral expenses.
