Police investigate double shooting in west Denver

2 people were shot at West 8th Avenue and Sheridan Boulevard, and at least one of them was shot while driving, according to police.

DENVER — Two people were shot and injured Friday night at West 8th Avenue and Sheridan Boulevard, according to the Denver Police Department (DPD).

DPD got a call about the shooting at 8:12 p.m. At least one of the victims was shot while driving on Sheridan and got themselves to a hospital, a DPD spokesperson said.

The other victim also self-transported to a hospital, though the spokesperson said she didn't know the circumstances of how that person was shot.

Neither victim sustained life-threatening injuries, DPD said.

Two suspects were arrested. On Monday, DPD identified one of them as Lorenzo Chavez, 22, who is facing a charge of first-degree assault causing serious injury with a deadly weapon.

The second suspect is a juvenile male, according to a police spokesperson.

Additional circumstances of the shooting weren't released.

The Lakewood Police Department (LPD) said they assisted DPD in their response to the shooting and found a possible suspect's car near Belmar.

DPD also investigated another shooting Friday night, this one fatal, in the area of East 40th Avenue and Chambers Road.
