Police have not released any information about a suspect in the shooting.

DENVER — One man was killed and another is in critical condition following a shooting Wednesday night in northeast Denver, according to Denver Police (DPD). 

DPD said in a tweet that officers were called to investigate a shooting near the intersection of Green Valley Ranch Boulevard and Memphis Street shortly before 8 p.m. That's in Denver's Green Valley Ranch neighborhood and just a few blocks south of Parkfield Lake Park.

One man who was shot was taken to the hospital where he later died, while another victim remained in critical condition, DPD said. 

The Office of the Medical Examiner later identified the man who was killed as 20-year-old Cesar Rodriguez. His manner of death was ruled a homicide.

Police have not released any information about a possible suspect.  An investigation is ongoing.
