Sentencing rescheduled for Larry Lynn Gomez in second case for shooting at an officer

DENVER - A prisoner already serving a 96-year sentence for shooting at a Westminster police officer was originally scheduled to be sentenced Friday for shooting at a Denver officer during another incident. That hearing is now being delayed until Jan. 24.

Larry Lynn Gomez was convicted of shooting at Denver police officers during a nighttime traffic stop on Nov. 6. He got away that night.

The next night, Gomez was pulled over by an officer in Westminster. The officer said as he walked up to the car, a man leaned out of the window, shot the officer and drove off.

Gomez was arrested two days later after what police called a wild vehicle and foot chase that started in Denver and ended in Aurora. At some point during the chase, Gomez was shot.

The sentencing hearing is scheduled for 8:30 a.m.
