WESTMINSTER, Colo. — What started out as a disturbance call to Westminster Police (WPD), was soon upgraded to a shooting when officers arrived to the scene and found a woman with a gunshot wound.
WPD arrived to the 7700 block of Lowell Boulevard close to 3 p.m. Wednesday and found a woman who had been shot – she was transported to a local hospital. According to police, her condition is still unknown.
Detectives spoke with witnesses who were near the scene to try to figure out what happened.
WPD said they are trying to locate two cars that left the home before officers arrived – a blue, newer model Dodge Ram with unknown plates and a tan or gold 4-door sedan, also with an unknown plate number.
The shooting scene was still active at 5 p.m. Wednesday with detectives investigating in the area.
Lowell Boulevard was closed from 76th Avenue and 78th Avenue for a couple of hours while detectives investigated. The road reopened at around 6 p.m. Wednesday.
