DENVER — Police have arrested a man on suspicion of shooting two people, killing one of them, in downtown Denver early Friday morning.

According to the Denver Police Department (DPD), officers responded to the area of Stout and 13th streets just after midnight Friday on reports of a shooting. That's located just south of the Denver Performing Arts Complex.

A release from DPD said that when officers got there, they found two men who had been shot. The victims were taken to the hospital, where one of them died Friday afternoon. 

The victim who died was identified as 19-year-old Dutson Nguyen by the Denver Office of the Medical Examiner, and the death was ruled a homicide due to a gunshot injury.
