3 dead after shooting, crash on Peoria Street Friday night

A 13-year-old boy and a 14-year-old boy died of injuries sustained in the shooting. A man was killed in the crash.

DENVER — The Denver Police Department (DPD) is investigating a shooting and car crash that left three people dead Friday night. 

According to DPD, two dark-colored sedans were driving southbound next to each other on North Peoria Street just south of Interstate 70 in Denver when someone in one of the cars shot at the people in the other car. 

Police said the cars continued to travel south over the railroad tracks at high speed. The cars traveled into Aurora, where one crashed into a pickup truck, DPD said.

The driver of the other car left the scene going south, according to DPD. 

The Denver coroner's office said the two victims in the car, a 13-year-old boy and a 14-year-old boy, both died of injuries sustained in the shooting. Police said they were the only people in the car. It's unclear which boy was driving.

The driver of the pickup truck, 37-year-old Uriel Reyes Medina, was taken to the hospital, where he died of injuries sustained in the crash. 

No one has been arrested in the shooting, and police said they don't have any information on suspects at this point.
