At 10 a.m. Thursday, Boulder County sheriff's deputies responded to the San Lazaro mobile home park at 55th Street and Valmont Road on a report of a male who was unresponsive, according to officials.
On scene, deputies found a 37-year-old man in his mobile home with a gunshot wound to his chest. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Investigators determined that Carla Maria Bencomo, 34, a female friend of the victim, had been with him at the time of the shooting. She was contacted in Denver and arrested. She was booked into the Boulder County Jail.

Bencomo made her first appearance in court this afternoon. Prosecutors asked that her bond be set at $250,000 because they allege that after the victim was shot, Bencomo wiped down the gun in an attempt to remove fingerprints, and was attempting to flee to Mexico before being arrested.
Boulder County prosecutor Ryan Brackley said Bencomo was convinced by family members to turn herself in to police and walked in to a police station in Denver.
Bencomo's case has an Immigration and Customs Enforcement hold on it, meaning that she may eventually end up in the custody of immigration officials.
Because the investigation is ongoing, officials are not releasing any more information about the case or a booking photo, according to Cmdr. Rick Brough of the Boulder County Sheriff's Office.
The identity of the victim will be released once next of kin have been notified.
The Boulder County Coroner's Office is conducting an autopsy to determine the official cause and manner of death.
Bencomo will next appear in court at 2 p.m. Tuesday for filing of charges.
"We're working with the Boulder County Sheriff's Office to review the evidence and make the appropriate charging decisions," Brackley said.This article was originally published in forum thread: CO - DA: Suspect tried to flee to Mexico after Boulder trailer park shooting started by Jean View original post
