The three suspects in a Boulder shooting Thursday that left a man hospitalized are facing first-degree assault and aggravated robbery charges.

Jacob Evans, Simba Maat and Madison Montross, all 19, were arrested Tuesday on suspicion of first-degree assault, aggravated robbery, felony menacing, criminal attempt and conspiracy to commit a crime. Evans and Montross are also facing charges of complicity.

Boulder police spokeswoman Laurie Ogden said Maat is the suspected shooter at this time, while Evans and Montross are believed to be conspirators.

Police said a man was shot at 4:30 p.m. Thursday in the parking lot outside a housing complex in the 2900 block of Shady Hollow West, near Valmont Road.

Officers found the man with a gunshot wound to his upper right thigh and applied a tourniquet before he was taken to Boulder Community Health’s Foothills Hospital for surgery.

Boulder police said Friday the man was stable following the surgery, but did not provide any more information about him.

A red Ford hatchback suspected to have been associated with the shooting was spotted in Longmont on Tuesday. Longmont police assisted Boulder authorities in stopping the vehicle, and one of the male suspects was taken into custody.

Montross and the other male suspect were identified and arrested separately in Boulder following the Longmont arrest.

Police have not yet commented on a possible motive behind the shooting or whether the suspects knew the victim.

Anyone who may have information about this case is asked to call Boulder police Detective Ashly Flynn at 303-441-1850 or Detective Kevin Marples at 303-441-3345.

According to court records, Maat also has outstanding cases in Arapahoe County and in South Dakota.

All three suspects are in custody at the Boulder County Jail and made their first appearances Wednesday to set bond before their formal filing of charges on Friday.

Evans was given a $10,000 personal recognizance bond, while Montross was given a $10,000 secured bond, according to court records.

Maat was given a $50,000 personal recognizance bond on the shooting case, but court records indicate he was not granted bond on the South Dakota cases and will have to remain in custody.
