DENVER — A man and a woman died in a shooting early Saturday in the Goldsmith neighborhood in southeast Denver, according to the Denver Police Department (DPD).

Denver Police officers responded to the shooting at 2:27 a.m. in the 5000 block of East Warren Avenue. That's just east of Interstate 25 and south of Evans Avenue.

The two victims were taken to hospitals, where they were both declared deceased.

The Denver Medical Examiner's Office identified the victims as Elwood Johnson, 33, and Taryn Meyer, 38.

The crime scene was being processed for evidence, according to DPD. A police spokesperson said on Monday that it appeared the victims and the shooter were known to one another.

No suspects were in custody, and DPD didn't release any suspect description.
