DENVER (AP) - Prosecutors are holding off on charging a 17-year-old boy arrested in connection with the fatal shooting of a Denver cab driver, but charges may be filed later.

Lynn Kimbrough, a spokeswoman for the District Attorney’s Office, told The Denver Post (https://goo.gl/cMfnvl ) on Tuesday the teen, whose name has not been released, was arrested on probable cause, but prosecutors need to be able to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. She didn’t elaborate on why prosecutors declined to immediately file charges.

The teen remains in custody in an unrelated case.

Investigators say 49-year-old Darren Bloomquist was killed Sept. 5 while picking up a fare near Green Valley Ranch, a gated community northeast of Denver. Metro Taxi says he was shot in the head.

Arrest documents in the case have been sealed.
