Tyler Lee Wheeler (El Paso County Sheriff's Department)
A former Fort Carson soldier was found guilty Thursday on all charges, including first-degree murder, for his role in a gun battle that left one man dead.
Tyler Lee Wheeler, 21, was accused of killing Kenyatta Horne with a shotgun loaded with birdshot during an Oct. 7, 2018, drug robbery over $800 worth of cocaine.
"It all kind of tumbled pretty quickly," El Paso County sheriff's detective Karl Mai testified at a January preliminary hearing in 4th Judicial District Court, describing how Wheeler and a second man opened fire in the street after Horne, 20, drew a pistol.
A would-be thief made a huge mistake on Aug. 2 when he tried (and failed) to steal a woman’s purse outside of a supermarket in Cape Coral, Florida. His mistake? Like many — and we mean many, manywould-be thieves — he didn’t count on a few Marine veterans standing nearby.
A man sneaked into the back of a beer truck behind a liquor store in downtown Minneapolis, intent on stealing some of the inventory, but the driver thwarted the thirsty thief and locked the interloper inside until police arrived, authorities said Thursday.
