D-blog to testify in murder trial

Fuuuuuuuuuu. Just got the subpoena today. Not gonna say nothin' about the case, except that it involves persons previously (to the murder, that is) unknown to the peace-loving D-blog. Instead I'll just quote from Michael Roberts' (blech) brief write-up of the murder in Westword nearly two years ago:
Michael Chavez was murdered near the 1600 block of Bryant Street; at this writing, no one has been arrested or charged for the crime.

Now, there's been another fatal shooting not far away -- near 26th and Bryant, according to the Denver coroner's office, which has identified the victim as Jeremy Wilson, age 23. The office says ID was confirmed by fingerprints, suggesting that Wilson's info was already in the system.

What happened? We've got the basics below.

At around 10:53 p.m., notes the Denver Police Department, officers responded to an address in the vicinity -- the DPD refers to it as the 2600 block of West 27th Avenue -- after receiving a shots-fired call.

There, they found Wilson, who was suffering from an apparent gunshot wound. He was transported to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
They caught somebody, of course. The trial is next month, and after I testify I'll tell the story here. There will be pictures.
