Daniel Alderete charged after being shot by cop following justified killing of Jesus Sifuentes Jr.

You knew this one was coming. Following gunplay on 18th Avenue, Filberto Alderete was arrested for killing Jesus Sifuentes Jr. -- but he was subsequently cleared under the Make My Day law. Likewise, the police shooting of Daniel Alderete at the same location was ruled justifiable by the Denver District Attorney's Office, because Daniel allegedly had a gun.

Daniel Alderete has now been charged with menacing and is due in court tomorrow. More details in the DA's Office release below:


Denver District Attorney Mitch Morrissey has formally charged a man accused of menacing a Denver police officer last weekend as officers responded to reports of gunfire in the 3400 block of W. 18th Avenue.

Daniel Alderete (dob: 08-05-84) is charged with one count of menacing (F5).

The charge alleges that Alderete was armed with a gun as an officer approached and did not comply with an order to drop the gun.

Alderete remains in custody and is scheduled to appear in Denver County Courtroom 2100 at 10:30 a.m., Tuesday, July 27, 2010 to be advised of the charge.
