Man Sentenced to 128 Years in Prison for Shooting Littleton Police Officer

The man convicted of shooting a Littleton police officer in 2021, Rigoberto Valles-Dominguez, has been sentenced to 128 years in prison, according to the 18th Judicial District Attorney’s Office. Valles-Dominguez, 35, was found guilty by an Arapahoe County jury in July on four counts of first-degree attempted murder, assault, aggravated robbery, and weapons-related charges.

The incident occurred on September 20, 2021, when officers responded to reports of shots fired near West Powers Avenue and South Bannock Street. Valles-Dominguez was encountered by the officers and attempted to flee. During a foot chase, he pulled out a handgun and started shooting, hitting Officer David Snook in the torso, arm, and leg. Cpl. Jeff Farmer also responded to the scene.

Valles-Dominguez managed to escape and hid in an apartment complex for several hours before carjacking a motorist. He was apprehended four days later while hiding in an attic in Brighton.

Officer David Snook’s life was saved with the assistance of Cpl. Jeff Farmer, who was awarded a Medal of Valor by President Joe Biden earlier this year.
