Isabella Thallas and Boyfriend Shot Dead During An Argument Over Dog Poop
According to a probable cause affidavit cited by The Denver Post, Darian Simon and Isabella Thallas were taking their dog, named Rocco, out for a walk in the 3000 blocks of North Huron Street at around 11.42 am when he yelled at the pooch to poop.
Simon reportedly heard a stranger’s voice from a ground-level apartment asking if they were going to train their dog to go to the bathroom.
He tried to ignore the stranger’s comments but the stranger went on to point a gun towards them, which he initially mistook for a pellet gunshot.
Several gunshots were fired, hitting Simon and Thallas. Thallas was announced dead at the moment while Simon was wounded.
Simon fled away but could not get far because of his injuries. He was taken to a hospital suffering from gunshot wounds to the back and leg.
According to the description of a GoFundMe campaign, one of the rounds ‘completely shattered’ his femur, which will require multiple surgeries to repair.
