12-year-old car theft suspect fatally shot after shootout with owner in Denver

A 12-year-old car theft suspect died of a gunshot wound after being confronted by the car’s owner, according to the Denver Police Department. 

Denver’s Office of the Medical Examiner reported Tuesday that Elias Armstrong, 12, died of a gunshot wound Sunday. 

Police received a report of an auto theft in the 8300 block of E. Northfield Boulevard, according to police. 

The car’s owner tracked the vehicle using an app and found it stopped in the area of West 12th Avenue and North Decatur Street.

“When the vehicle’s owner approached the car, he was involved in an exchange of gunfire with occupant(s) in the stolen vehicle,” according to investigators. “A juvenile male then drove the stolen vehicle to the 2900 block of W. 10th Ave. where he was found by officers to be suffering from a gunshot wound.”

Here’s the truly remarkable part of it:

The car’s owner gave a statement to investigators. He has not been arrested and no charges have been filed, according to police. 

He couldn’t possibly be a white guy, judging from that last sentence, no way. Expect rioting to follow anyhow, because Reasons. Arthur chimes in thusly:

I am surprised a news outlet in 2023 would publish a photo of a little black criminal, that is one reason I archived the page.

I remember getting into some shenanigans as a 12 year old, especially since we were just starting to notice girls, but I don’t recall any shoot-outs with adults. That is probably because I never stole any cars, not at 12 nor later in life.

Me neither, buddy. Me neither.

He doesn’t look 12. They may be trying a Trayvon here but forgot the 12 year old picture.

"I predict that the Bush administration will be seen by freedom-wishing Americans a generation or two hence as the hinge on the cell door locking up our freedom.
