Denver police are asking for the public’s help in a homicide investigation after a 14-year-old boy was killed near a baseball diamond at the Southwest Recreation Center on Monday afternoon.
Police said Josiaz “JoJo” Aragon was killed around 1:15 p.m. Monday outside the rec center at 9200 West Saratoga Place. He would have turned 15 on Wednesday, police said.
