DENVER — A teenage girl who was shot and wounded during a domestic violence incident earlier this week has died from her injuries, according to an update from the Denver Police Department (DPD).

She and an adult man were shot by 18-year-old Ziyere Daniel around 11:30 p.m. on Oct. 11,  in the 10000 block of East Girard Avenue, which is near East Hampden Avenue north of Cherry Creek Reservoir, DPD said earlier.

Daniel was found dead at the scene and the coroner determined that he died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Police initially said the teenage girl was in critical condition, and said Thursday that she died as result of her injuries. The man who was wounded is expected to survive, DPD said.

An infant, who police said was the child of the suspect and the teen girl, suffered serious injuries after being dropped by the suspect, police said. That child is also expected to survive, DPD said Thursday.
