A fight between Tesla drivers at an electric vehicle charging station in suburban Denver escalated into a fatal shooting that killed one driver and left another man in custody, authorities said Wednesday.
Both men were driving a Tesla, Sgt. Bob Brink with Edgewater police said.
Investigators are still working to determine what led to the fight, which broke out at about 9:40 a.m. in a parking lot outside a food hall in Edgewater.
The name of the 33-year-old man from Denver who died has not been released.
The second man later called 911 to report he was involved in the shooting and was detained, said Jenny Fulton, a spokeswoman for the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office.
Two shots were fired during the altercation, Fulton said, and the man who died had been hospitalized with a single gunshot wound. It wasn’t immediately clear if both shots were fired by the man who turned himself in.
In a short update Thursday, Edgewater police said the man who turned himself in has been released and no charges have been filed. The First Judicial District Attorney’s Office is assisting in the investigation.
“As the investigation is still underway and all evidence is being carefully evaluated by law enforcement, no further information will be released at this time,” Edgewater police said Thursday.
The fight was at the Edgewater Public Market on the corner of West 20th Ave and Depew Street.
