Suspect shoots at men during rush-hour traffic

Shooting on a busy street in the middle of the evening rush left two people wounded in Denver.

KUSA - Deputies hope witnesses will come forward with information about the suspect accused of shooting at two men during evening rush hour.

According to the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office, two victims suffered non life-threatening injures after a man shot at them on two different occasions on Wednesday afternoon.

Investigators say the first confrontation happened at the 1000 block of S. Parker Road. The suspect shot at the two men, who fled in their car. The suspect followed them onto Leetsdale Drive, where he got out of his car near Jersey Street and shot at the victims again.

That's when the men ran into a nearby business and the suspect fled the scene.

Denver Police Department started the investigation, which closed Leetsdale Drive in both directions for hours.

Investigators say the suspect is a heavy-set Hispanic male, weighing about 230 pounds. He is bald and was wearing a bright green T-shirt. His vehicle is described as a hunter green sedan, possibly a 1990s Buick.

Anyone who witnessed the shooting or has information about the suspect or his whereabouts is asked to contact 303-795-4711 immediately.
