A man in Colorado allegedly shot his former boss to death, following a dispute over a typo on his paycheck in a parking lot.

The accused, identified as 35-year-old Lloyd Clifford Love, was charged with one count of first-degree murder for the fatal killing of 52-year-old Marvin Johnson, according to an Aurora Police statement.

The police initially responded to a report of a trespass in the 16800 block of Centretech Parkway, Aurora, at around 7 p.m. on Oct. 20. While the officers were on their way to the scene, they received another call regarding a shooting on the same property.

When the cops reached the scene, they found Johnson suffering from gunshot wounds to his face and body. He was pronounced dead, even after security officers provided him aid.

"They learned the shooting stemmed from a dispute between an employer and a former employee. Officers and EMS responders provided lifesaving measures, which unfortunately were unsuccessful and the victim was pronounced dead," the statement added.

Witnesses told the cops the accused fled the scene before their arrival. Officers also recovered five spent .380 shell casings in the area, the outlet added.

According to a probable cause affidavit by the Aurora PD, Love called his girlfriend to pick him up, saying: "I just did something stupid," News & Observers said.

After searching the area, the cops and SWAT located Love's vehicle, and arrested him and his girlfriend without further incident.

Love told the officers he was angry as he could not cash his first paycheck because of a typo in his name, as per the affidavit.

He received his first paycheck on Oct. 20, which said "Lloyd K. Love" instead of "Lloyd C. Love," which made him unable to receive his salary.

Frustrated, he called both owners of the company -- Marvin Johnson and his wife, Patricia Johnson. Love also met Patricia in a parking lot on Centretech Parkway in Aurora to get a new paycheck. However, she told him she couldn't write another check for him until the original one was accounted for. When he got angry, Patricia called for security to kick him off the property, the affidavit added.

Marvin told her to hold writing another check, adding he was almost there, Patricia said, according to the affidavit. Patricia further informed the police Love and Marvin got into an altercation after he arrived at the parking lot.

Love was held without bond at Arapahoe County Detention Center. He also refused to appear in court for his first advisement on Oct. 24, KDVR reported.
