A witness told police that two of the distinct white and light blue cars from the Car2Go fleet had fled the scene after 22-year-old Daerius Churchill was gunned down Jan. 4 on the corner of Bruce Randolph Avenue and St. Paul Street.
A surveillance camera at a nearby business recorded three of the vehicles in the area, according to a search warrant affidavit.
Officials with Car2Go in Denver told detectives that GPS tracking systems on the car allow them to identify which cars are moving at any given time, the search warrant said. That should have narrowed the list to investigate.
However, the detective wrote in his affidavit that he and the Car2Go manager uncovered multiple cars that had been rented under fictitious names through a call center.
The company told police it records phone conversations between its representatives and customers. It also logs the caller ID numbers, the search warrant affidavit said.
Car2Go customers are vetted through an online application process, said Dacyl Armendariz, a company spokeswoman.
“It’s not like just anybody can jump in a car and drive away,” she said.
