Sheldon Chrysler, Tom Martino Nemesis Left Homeless, on Witnessing Krameria Shooting

Update: Denver police are still looking for a suspect who critically injured a man in a shooting near 14th and Krameria early yesterday morning; see our previous coverage below. But even without an arrest, the case has already generated a strange twist. The incident was witnessed, in a manner of speaking, by Sheldon Chrysler, whose failed lawsuits against self-proclaimed radio Troubleshooter Tom Martino (who called him a "waste of skin") were covered extensively in this space. Chrysler is now homeless and was just drifting off to sleep in his car, where he now lives, when gunfire rang out mere feet away.
