Vegas shooting suspect arrested in Denver
By Kieran Nicholson, The Denver Post

Good police work and a long-distance rapport helped police snag a suspect in a Las Vegas multiple drive-by shooting at a bus stop in Denver.
"It was just good communication across state lines," said Sonny Jackson, a Denver police spokesman.

Nicco Tatum, 18, was arrested at about 10 p.m. Wednesday at the downtown Denver Bus Terminal, at 19th and Curtis streets. Tatum is wanted in connection with a shooting at a school-bus stop in Las Vegas that injured six young people, police said.

He was taken into custody without incident, Jackson said, by the Fugitive Location and Apprehension Group (FLAG), which included Denver SWAT and U.S. Marshals Service members.

Chief Deputy Ken Deal with the Marshals Service in Denver said his office was alerted by counterparts in Las Vegas that Tatum was on a Greyhound bus heading for Chicago that would make a stop in Denver.

FLAG officers waiting for Tatum in Denver watched one bus that the suspect was supposed to be on arrive and unload, but Tatum wasn't found.

The FLAG group was patient and waited for a second bus, Deal said.

"They just stayed put," Deal said. "At that point in time, there wasn't any reason for them to leave."

Tatum was traveling alone and had several bags of clothing with him, Deal said.

He is expected to be booked on six counts of attempted murder with a deadly weapon and six counts of battery with a deadly weapon.

I'm the kind of hombre who passions to try original things. Currently I am making my own photovoltaic panels. I'm managing it all alone without the aid of my staff. I'm using the internet as the only path to acheive that. I ran across a truly amazing website that explains how to create photovoltaic panels and so on. The place explains all the steps needed for solar panel construction.

I'm not sure about how precise the info given there iz. If some people over here who had experience with these things can have a see and give your feedback in the site it will be awesome and I would really treasure it, cause I really like solar panel construction.

Tnx for reading this. You guys are the best.
