Pamela Cabriales shot while driving on West Colfax Avenue, dies at Denver hospital

A woman who was shot on West Colfax Avenue in Denver died Wednesday evening and police have identified one of the three suspects in the case.

Pamela Cabriales, 32, died at Denver Health Medical Center of a gunshot wound, according to the Denver Office of the Medical Examiner. Her death is a homicide.

Cabriales was shot, several times, at about 10:45 p.m. Saturday when someone fired on the Range Rover she was driving on Colfax near I-25.

Three people, two juveniles and a man, have been arrested as suspects in the case.

Neshan Johnson, 18, is being held on suspicion of vehicular eluding and attempted first-degree murder, police said. The two juveniles have not been identified.

One juvenile has been released from custody and the other juvenile is being held on suspicion of attempted first-degree murder, police said. Police have turned over the case to the Denver District Attorney’s Office.

The suspects were arrested at about 12:15 a.m. Sunday when officers saw a vehicle that matched the suspect vehicle description. The driver attempted to flee police, but the vehicle, on Tejon Street one block north of West Alameda Avenue, crashed into a pole, knocked a fire hydrant off of its base and then slammed through a chain-link fence, according to an arrest affidavit. The trio attempted to flee on foot but were caught and taken into custody, according to an arrest affidavit.

Cabriales was a real estate agent and a mother, according to Denver Channel 7. Her mourning family, friends and colleagues are seeking justice in the case.

Her family has set up a GoFundMe account to benefit her 6-year-old son with funds raised going toward his future college tuition. As of Friday morning, more than $22,000 from 282 donors has been raised.

“Pam was an amazing mother, daughter, sister and friend,” the victim’s brother, Alex Cabriales, told Denver7. “She was everything. She was a ray of sunshine. She was always worried about other people, always wanted to help others.”
