Police Friday night arrested a man for attempted second-degree murder who, with an accomplice, early last year led dozens of officers on a three-hour manhunt after crashing a stolen car in Boulder and fleeing the scene on foot.

Boulder resident Kaylob Lee Marrs, 22, is back in the Boulder County Jail on a $100,000 bond, held for investigation of attempted second-degree murder and other charges.

A Boulder police news release stated that the latest arrest of Marrs stemmed from an incident that occurred the afternoon of April 27. The victim in the incident was dropping someone off in the Orchard Grove Mobile Home Park at 3003 Valmont Road, police said, when Marrs pulled up next to him.

An argument ensued, police said, then Marrs held a handgun outside the window and fire a shot toward the victim’s vehicle.

A bullet struck the victim’s vehicle, according to police. The victim sped from the scene and then called police.

Investigators looked for Marrs throughout the metro area, police said, and located him and took the suspect into custody Friday night in Golden.

On Jan. 23 of last year, Marrs, along with David Gerardo Fuentes-Fuentes, also of Boulder, crashed a stolen car near north Broadway and U.S. 36, then ran from police, setting off a search in which the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office deployed 22 members of its SWAT team.


They also brought in search dogs and used thermal imaging cameras. Residents of the Dakota Ridge subdivision were notified by emergency phone alerts to stay in their home.

In all, 35 deputies and police officers were involved in the search before the two men, who allegedly had stolen the 1997 Honda Accord one week earlier in Aurora, were apprehended.
