Allegedly, one of the brothers approached Long, assaulted him through the open window, and in response, Long reached for his gun and fired at the assailant.

Further, The vehicle’s driver also allegedly exited and clung onto the 25-year-old’s open window as he attempted to flee. Long accepted shooting the driver when he reached the West 8th Avenue exit.

Despite the dispute, the 25-year-old sustained no visible injuries and did not contact emergency services before or after leaving the scene.

The investigation into this tragic shooting is still ongoing, with authorities examining the details of the confrontation between Long and the Lucas brothers.

Initial reports suggest that Long drew his firearm and fatally shot the victims, leading to the temporary closure of the northbound lanes of Interstate 25 as law enforcement conducted their investigation.

Police authorities argue that there were many other ways of dealing with the situation rather than killing the victims.

In Denver County Court, Long waived his right to an advisement hearing and was subsequently ordered to be held without bond.

While further investigation is going on, Long is being charged with two first-degree murders of the brother. The accused will get a life sentence with no possibility of parole if all the accusations are proven.
