Aaron Lopez, Brianna Ortiz Charged in Boogie Down Shooting, Christopher Uvalle Surrenders

Update: Last week, we told you about a shooting at the Boogie Down Bar & Grill; see our previous coverage below.

No suspect information was available in the immediate aftermath of the gunplay. But yesterday, the Denver Police Department released the name of a suspect: Christopher Uvalle, age 22. Here's a closer look at Uvalle, who turned himself in to authorities within hours of the DPD alert -- plus (update number two) pics and information about Brianna Ortiz and Aaron Lopez, who are being charged in the case.
