3 dead at northeast Denver apartment in possible drug overdose

The coroner's office is working to determine how the three men died. Police said there is no threat to the public.

DENVER — Officers are investigating after three people died at an apartment in a possible drug overdose in northeast Denver Sunday afternoon, the Denver Police Department said.

Police are investigating the deaths at the Station A Apartments on Kittredge Street near the intersection with 45th Avenue in the Gateway/Green Valley Ranch neighborhood. Officers responded to the apartment around 5:30 p.m.

Police said no arrests have been made, and there is no threat to the public.

The victims were identified as Jairon Jackson, 31, Darren King Jr., 28, and Terrance King, 30. The coroner's office said autopsies have been completed, and the causes of their deaths are pending. 

The Denver Fire Department said they were initially called to the scene for a hazmat situation, but that call was canceled because hazmat was no longer needed.

Police said Monday that investigators think the victims possibly died due to a drug overdose but have not made a final determination.
