Charged & Arrested
Prosecutors have charged two teenagers with her death: Neshan Johnson, 18, and a 14-year-old boy who has not been identified because of his age. Investigators believe that the younger teen shot Cabriales as Johnson drove the car they were in. The young teen allegedly fired six times into Cabriales’ SUV before they took off, the Denver Post reported. One of the bullets struck her in the head.
“They left her for dead,” Alex Cabriales, Pamela’s brother, told KCNC-TV in Denver.
The two teens were located the following day when a Denver police officer recognized a car they were in from a prior incident. He began trailing the car, which Johnson was driving, and that led to a pursuit. Johnson then crashed the car and he and two underage males ran from the accident scene, according to the district attorney’s office. A SWAT team and K-9 Units searched the area until they discovered Johnson hiding in a nearby shed. The alleged shooter and another male juvenile were also arrested.
The 14-year-old is being charged with two counts of murder in the first degree, one count of criminal attempt to commit murder in the first degree with extreme indifference, one count of criminal attempt to commit assault in the first degree with extreme indifference, and with two counts of the sentencing enhancing charge of being an aggravated juvenile offender. Neshan Johnson has been charged with two counts of murder in the first degree, one count of criminal attempt to commit murder in the first degree with extreme indifference, one count of criminal attempt to commit assault in the first degree with extreme indifference, and one count of vehicular eluding.
A status conference on charging the teen in adult court is set for March 23 at 9 a.m., a spokeswoman for the DA’s office said, adding she could not provide more information until the transfer process finishes.
The district attorney’s office said Monday prosecutors believe a 14-year-old male suspect shot Pamela Cabriales, 32, as she drove near the Interstate 25 exit and Neshan Johnson, 18, drove a getaway car. Cabriales was returning home after dinner in Lower Downtown Denver on Feb. 20 when she was shot, arrest documents show.
Both suspects face two counts of first-degree murder, one count of attempted first-degree murder with extreme indifference, and one count of attempted first-degree assault with extreme indifference. The juvenile faces two counts of being an aggravated juvenile offender. His name has not been made public.
Johnson also faces one count of vehicular eluding. His case has an advisement hearing scheduled for Friday at 10 a.m.
Cabriales was shot at least once in the head while driving her 2008 Land Rover SUV, police said. She had been hospitalized since Feb. 20 and was pronounced dead last Wednesday, according to police.
The arrest report states witnesses said a suspect approached the passenger side of Cabriales’ car on foot and then fired into the vehicle at least six times. The report says her windshield had eight bullet holes.
