DENVER — A 6-year-old boy was taken to the hospital late Thursday night after being injured in a shooting at a home in northeast Denver, according to the Denver Police Department (DPD).
The shooting occurred in the 3400 block of Harrison Street, which is near the intersection of Bruce Randolph Avenue and Colorado Boulevard. DPD said the child was taken to the hospital with a "good prognosis."
Nileah Salazar said her 6-year-old brother, Adrian, was the one who was shot. She told 9NEWS that the family was inside watching TV at about 12:30 a.m. when they heard shots and her mom started screaming about "the baby getting shot."
Adrian was shot in the chest and underwent surgery on Friday morning, Salazar said.
In a tweet, police said they believe multiple suspects fired shots into the home. A 9NEWS photographer who went to scene saw what appeared to be bullet holes visible from the exterior of the home.
DPD said they are currently looking for the suspects.
Officers are also asking for the public's help in the ongoing investigation. Anyone with information is encouraged to call 720-913-7867.
