Mesa County authorities have issued a warrant for a 37-year-old Littleton man in the October homicide of a Palisade man.

Mitchell is suspected in the October 16 shooting death of Paul Davis. In the meantime Mesa County authorities have been working with Denver metro agencies and executing search warrants and court orders to collect DNA and fingerprint evidence.
Mitchell is wanted for first-degree murder, second-degree murder, aggravated robbery, first-degree burglary, theft between $5,000 and $20,000 and possession of a firearm by a previous offender.
