Sonny Jackson with Denver police said officers responded to a shooting call in the 3400 block of West 9th Avenue around 2:20 a.m. Wednesday.
“When Officers arrived on scene they found two individuals who appeared to be suffering from gunshot wounds,” Jackson said in a statement. “One of the victims was pronounced dead at the scene. The other was transported to the hospital with wounds to his lower body.”
