A young woman died of a gunshot wound on Sept. 28, two days after she was shot in a north Littleton apartment, according to police.

Keleshia Nash, 22, died at Swedish Medical Center on Sept. 28. The announcement of her death was delayed several days while police sought her next of kin, according to a Littleton police spokesman.

Andrew O'John, 20, faces a charge of first-degree murder in Nash's death, with sentence enhancements for a violent crime causing death and use of a deadly weapon. O'John is being held at the Arapahoe County jail without bond.

Police responded to Nash's apartment complex in the 5500 block of South Elati Street after a report of a shooting late on Sept. 26, according to an affidavit. Officers found O'John outside covered in blood. Nash lay in a hallway with a gunshot wound to the neck.

Officers interrogated O'John, who said that he and Nash were dating. O'John said he and Nash had gotten in an argument and Nash pulled out a gun.

O'John called the shooting an accident, saying he “must have gotten his finger in the trigger guard of the gun and pulled the trigger,” according to the affidavit.

O'John's next court hearing is on Oct. 26.
