The victim was shot late Thursday on West Harvard Avenue in southwest Denver.

DENVER — A man is in custody following a fatal shooting Thursday evening in Denver's College View South Platte neighborhood, according to a tweet from the Denver Police Department (DPD).

The agency first said in a tweet just before 10 p.m. Thursday that officers responded to a shooting in the 2700 block of West Harvard Avenue and located one victim. That's a few blocks east of the intersection of South Federal Boulevard and West Harvard Avenue in southwest Denver.
