Now, police say they have the suspected killer in custody.
Around 2:30 a.m. on March 27, a Greeley, Colorado, police officer was at the hospital for a call. That is when a vehicle pulled up with a gunshot victim inside.
The victim was a 31-year-old man who was taken to emergency surgery, according to Greeley police. He had life-threatening injuries and died a few days later.
The victim was identified as Eric Maxwell.
