Posted

Brighton police tweeted that officers arrested a suspect wanted in connection with the shooting of two Littleton police officers earlier this week.

Details on the arrest were not immediately clear. Rigoberto "Rigo" Valles Dominguez was taken into custody around 10:40 p.m. There were no injuries to officers or the suspect, according to a police department tweet. 

The incident started around 3:45 p.m.  in the area of 27th Avenue and Bromley Lane, just east of Observatory Park

During a mid-evening briefing, Brighton Police Department Deputy Chief Matt Domenico said police received a tip that Dominguez  was in a home in the 1100 block of South 27th Avenue. Domenico wasn't at liberty to say how police learned that Dominguez was in the area.

Dominguez is wanted in connection with the shooting of two Littleton police officers early Tuesday morning at an apartment building on West Powers Avenue. One of those officers, David Snook, sustained wounds to his arm, leg and torso, according to Littleton police.  As of Sept. 24, Snook was in stable condition but stll in intensive care. A police corporal also sustained wounds.

The situation in Brighton forced a closure of 27th Avenue between Eagle Boulevard and Bromley Lane. The Adams County bomb squad was on the scene.

A fund has been set up to support Officer Snook and his family during his recovery. Donations may be made to the Rocky Mountain Federal Credit Union in David Snook's name.
