Reward for 2002 triple homicide in Littleton bowling alley increases to $30,000

A reward for information leading to the solving of a 2002 triple shooting in a Littleton bowling alley that killed three people has been increased to $30,000.

James Springer, 29, Erin Golla, 26, and Robert “Bobby” Zajac, 23, were fatally shot on Jan. 27, 2002, at the AMF Broadway Lanes Bowling Alley, 5485 S. Broadway, according to a Metro Denver Crimes Stoppers news release.

Springer and Golla worked at the business and were finishing their shifts when the shootings happened at about 11:45 p.m., according to authorities. Zajac, who worked at another bowling alley, was awaiting a ride home from Springer.

Golla made a phone call to a friend at about 11:40 p.m. asking for a ride home, according to the release. Golla’s friend found the victims at about at 11:55 p.m.

At about 11:50 p.m., a young, white man with a bald head and a medium build, was seen leaving the bowling alley. He was wearing a dark, below-the-knee length trench coat. The man got into a dark, late-model pickup truck which left the area heading south.

Investigators suspect the murders are possibly related to a prior attempted burglary of the bowling alley on Jan. 20, 2002.

“This community, especially the families of James, Erin, and Robert, deserve answers,” said Littleton police Chief Doug Stephens, in a news release. “We have Agents and Detectives working diligently on this case who are following up on every lead and tip we receive.”

Investigators continue to review and retest evidence, using improved and updated technology, including items recovered in a trash can in the men’s restroom and items found on the property.

Stephens urged anyone with information about the homicides, who has not already talked with investigators, to come forward.

“It is not too late to come forward,” he said.

Metro Denver Crime Stoppers is offering a reward for information leading to the arrest, or arrests, of anyone involved in the case. Tips can be made at 720-913-7867 (STOP) or @crimestoppersco and tipsters can remain anonymous.
