Police arrested 20-year-old Shameek Jamal Bernard Lewis in connection with the Sept. 8 shooting in the Summit Hall parking lot.
CSU Police Department and the Larimer County Sheriffâ€™s Office found and arrested Lewis in a Motel 6 on Mulberry Street near Interstate-25 in Fort Collins, according to a CSUPD press release.
The warrant for Lewisâ€™s arrest outlined charges for attempted first-degree murder and attempted aggravated robbery, according to the same advisory.
Police say Lewis was arrested as a suspect in the shooting of 21-year-old Johnnie Bradley Fresquez after allegedly seeking to buy drugs from him. The bullet grazed Fresquezâ€™s arm, after which he drove to his Broomfield home before alerting local police several hours later.
He did not seek treatment for his wounds.
Police believe that the two involved in the shooting chose CSU to make a drug deal and have no ties to the university.
After investigation CSUPD determined that the incident was isolated and there was no other danger to students and faculty.
As a result of the incident, the universityâ€™s Public Safety Committee approved the installation of additional lighting and security cameras in the area where the shooting occurred. Changes will be made by the end of October. The area is also home to one of CSUâ€™s emergency call boxes.
