Nicholas Lee Locascio
A Colorado Springs man has been sentenced to 42 years in prison for shooting and killing a man in the parking lot of a Centennial business.
Arapahoe District Court Judge Andrew Baum on Feb. 15 sentenced Nicholas Lee Locascio, 30, in the March 22 death of Justin Doe. Locascio pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in October 2018. The top range of the plea agreement was 42 years, so Locascio received the maximum sentence.
Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to QED, a business at 7000 S. Jordan Road about 10:45 on March 22 to investigate a reported shooting.
Doe was found outside on the ground. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The coroner later determined he died of a gunshot wound to the head.
Investigators spoke to eyewitnesses and found evidence that led them to Locascio as a suspect. He was arrested later that day near a fitness club in Aurora. Locascio tried to hide methamphetamine from the arresting officers.
Investigators found no prior connection between Locascio and Doe.
