Man unintentionally shoots, kills woman, Denver police say

A man appears to have unintentionally shot and killed a woman at a home in northeast Denver Saturday, according to Denver police.

The man, identified in court records as 25-year-old Eric Robles-Villa, was handling a gun at a home in the 5500 block of Abilene Street when the weapon fired and the woman was fatally wounded, police spokesman Kurt Barnes said Sunday.

Other people in the home called 911 after the shooting, Barnes said. Robles-Villa stayed at the scene. Barnes could not give any other detail about how the shooting unfolded, but said the man and woman were acquaintances.

The woman, who has not been publicly identified, was taken to a hospital where she died. Robles-Villa was arrested for investigation of reckless manslaughter.

The Denver District Attorney’s office will make the final decision on what criminal charges to bring.
