[05-22-24] Hit-And-Run, Car Theft Suspect Arrested on Crimes in Multiple Cities

DENVER ( KDVR ) — A man who allegedly stole a car owned by Arapahoe County and was wanted in other jurisdictions, including Denver and Broomfield, was arrested on Tuesday.

Paris Shannon, 35, was wanted on counts of burglary, motor vehicle theft, stalking, domestic violence and harassment, according to the Broomfield Police Department. He was arrested on Tuesday afternoon in Broomfield, a day after authorities had been trying to take him into custody.

The Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office said deputies established a perimeter Tuesday in the 8900 block of East Florida Avenue, where they were looking for a man who allegedly stole a parks and recreation car and crashed it into other vehicles. FOX31’s Alliyah Sims spoke to the department and was told the alleged theft happened at the Cheyenne-Arapaho Park, near the initial perimeter.

A neighbor who lived feet away from the park where the vehicle was allegedly stolen told Sims that the incident was “very scary.”

“I have seen those white pickup trucks,” the neighbor, who did not want to provide her name, told Sims. “I see about three of them, but I didn’t happen to see anything yesterday. It is kind of unnerving.

This is not the first time deputies tried to locate the suspect. Arapahoe County said deputies tracked the man to the same area on Monday but were unsuccessful in detaining him.

The sheriff’s office said they were unsuccessful a second time and could not initially locate the man on Tuesday, but there was no threat to the 8900 block of East Florida Avenue.

The neighbor said the park is “always full with little kids,” and said she’s keeping a lookout for the suspect, now in custody.

“It scared me, because I have never gotten anything like that here. I thought who is this, what is he up to, what is he going to do? I mean you don’t know.”

Suspect allegedly involved in Denver crash

According to deputies, the man was wanted for other crimes in Denver and Broomfield on a crash and violation of a protection order.

The department said the Denver crash happened at around 12:30 p.m. on Monday in the area of 22nd and Blake streets. Officers were called to a hit-and-run crash that involved two cars.

Car accidents happen all too often in the United States. According to the U.S. Transportation Department, the number of traffic deaths nationwide surged in the first nine months of 2021 to 31,720. The number was 12 percent higher than the same period in 2020 and the highest nine-month figure since 2006.

The bustling streets of Denver are a hotbed for possible car accidents. Arterials such as Colfax Avenue and Federal Boulevard are some of the deadliest roads in Denver and unfortunately provide many opportunities for potentially serious car accidents.

Following the nationwide trend, Denver car accidents have also been on the rise. According to an analysis from Denverite, traffic fatalities had reached an all-time high in 2021 with 84 people dying in traffic crashes last year. This had surpassed Denver’s 2019 record of 71 people. One of the ways the city is trying to cope with these figures is by reducing the speed limit in residential areas from 25 to 20 MPH. This so-called “20 is plenty” ordinance has been lauded by safer streets activist groups such as The Denver Streets Partnership who see this as the right direction. With only 20% of total traffic accidents happening on roads with speed limits of 25 MPH or less, time will tell if this ordinance will have the desired effect.

There are many different types of car accidents, but multi-vehicle accidents are one of them. When two or more cars come together, accidents like this happen all the time. You have a good chance that three vehicles will be hit when two vehicles hit each other.

A variety of factors caused these collisions. Distracted driving, speeding, driving while intoxicated, reckless driving, driving in bad weather, driving the wrong way, and failing to obey traffic laws are examples of dangerous behaviors.
