On the anniversary of the fatal shooting of 16-year-old Nathaniel Czajkowski, he is far from forgotten. The Gazette is examining Nate’s shooting, which remains unsolved, in its debut podcast, Colorado Cold Case. Just minutes after 3 a.m. on Oct. 29, 2017, one or more gunmen unleashed a spray of bullets on the western front of 24-hour Mexican restaurant Albertaco’s, off Austin Bluffs Parkway.
