1 killed, 4 injured in southeast Denver shooting

Police said the shooting happened during a confrontation at an apartment complex near East Hampden Avenue and South Dayton Street on Wednesday night.

DENVER — Police are investigating a shooting during a confrontation in southeast Denver that killed a man and injured four other people Wednesday night.

The Denver Police Department (DPD) said the shooting happened around 8:45 p.m. Wednesday at an apartment complex on East Girard Avenue, near East Hampden Avenue and South Dayton Street.

Investigators believe an assault took place inside an apartment, and the victim left and returned later with additional people, leading to a confrontation outside the complex.

Three of the victims were taken to the hospital, and two went to urgent care facilities before they were transported to the hospital, police said. 

One man was pronounced dead at the hospital. Two men, a woman and a 17-year-old boy who were also shot are expected to survive, police said.

Police said the suspect or suspects might be among those injured.

No arrests have been made. Police said they believe everyone involved has been identified and contacted, and do not believe the other residents of the complex are in any danger.
