DENVER (CBS4) – Police are looking for two suspects after a carjacking and shooting early Wednesday morning in Denver.

The female victim was found in the intersection of 13th Avenue and King Street. She had been shot and claimed that two men had carjacked her.

Police were looking for a 2006 dark blue Chevy Impala with tinted windows. It was found Wednesday morning in southwest Denver.

The possible suspects were described as being Hispanic. Police were waiting to talk more with the victim to get a better description.

CBS4’s Mark Taylor talked to Cindy Morales, who found the woman and brought her into an apartment complex located at 13th and Knox Court and called 911. Morales said the victim was disoriented and hysterical.

“I tried to get her to sit down but she wouldn’t,” Morales said. “She kept saying, ‘It hurts, it hurts,’ and she was hysterical.”

Morales realized she had been shot three times in her forearm.

“We don’t have any suspect information at this time,” Sgt. Steve Warnecke with Denver police said. “There’s still a lot of investigation that needs to be done.”

Morales said the victim thought the suspects were going to ask for directions.

“When she rolled down the window they pulled out a gun and pointed (it at her) head,” she said.

The victim, whose name hasn’t been released, was taken to the hospital and is listed in stable condition.

Anyone with information is asked to call Denver police at (720) 913-2000. Remain anonymous and call Crime Stoppers at (720) 913-STOP (7867). Text to CRIMES (274637) then title DMCS and enter the message or send an e-mail to metro-denvercrimestoppers.com.
