Suspect in Centennial slaying arrested after car chase

Jacqueline Lucero crashed in Aurora after lengthy pursuit

The suspect in the fatal shooting of a 30-year-old man in Centennial was arrested the morning of Nov. 6, the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office said in a news release.

Jacqueline Lucero, 34, was taken into custody in Denver after she crashed in Aurora following a car chase, according to the release.

The FBI's Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Fugitive Task Force developed information about Lucero's location near West 72nd Avenue and Federal Boulevard the morning of Nov. 6 before Lucero eluded officers in a car.

Lucero was seen driving in the area of Quebec Street and East 56th Avenue and led Denver Police Department officers on a pursuit throughout Denver, unincorporated Arapahoe County and Aurora until the car she was driving crashed in the area of East Alameda Avenue and South Potomac Street, the news release said. Officers took her into custody after a short foot chase.  

Lucero is being held on a warrant for first-degree murder. Additional charges related to the Nov. 6 incident are pending, the sheriff's office said.

The shooting happened at 5:05 p.m Oct. 30 in the 300 block of East Highline Circle in Centennial in a parking lot, according to the sheriff's office. The victim, Adolph Arellano, was taken to an area hospital, where he later died.

Lucero and the victim knew each other, and investigators do not believe it was a random crime, the sheriff's office said.
