DENVER, CO – A late-night gathering in Denver turned tragic when unexpected guests arrived, leading to a shooting that left two dead and four injured, as reported by local authorities on Sunday.
Among the deceased were a 26-year-old man and a minor, according to Denver police spokesperson Sean Towle. The injured, three adult men and another male of undetermined age, were rushed to the hospital. One of them is in critical condition. The identities of the victims and the age of the deceased minor have not been revealed by the police.
The incident occurred early Sunday morning, at 1:23 a.m., in a residence located on the 5000 block of North Orleans Court in Denver’s northeast Green Valley Ranch neighborhood.
Towle stated that the shooting incident was not random. The situation escalated when a group of uninvited individuals arrived at the party, leading to a conflict that quickly turned violent. Evidence at the scene indicated multiple shots were fired from several firearms.
The minor who was killed did not seem to be involved in the conflict, according to the police.
A local resident expressed fear and shock, stating, “The whole reason we got cameras is cause we feel unsafe and we just want to feel safe in this neighborhood. It’s crazy to think someone my age was doing something malicious.”
The investigation is still ongoing. As of Sunday, no arrests have been made and no suspects have been named.
