DENVER (CBS4) – A man collapsed and died outside of a gas station early Wednesday morning.
Police confirm they’re investigating a homicide at 35th Avenue and Downing Street, but are not releasing many details.
One witness told CBS4 that he heard the victim screaming that he’d been shot, which police later confirmed.
“I was driving down Downing, and I was going to pull over at the gas station, and I see a guy walking, but he was not walking very well, and he was holding his stomach, so I walk inside the store and get my stuff I needed to buy, come out, and what do I see? I see the guy falling on the grass on the other side of Downing close to the gas station,” said Philippe Dupuy, who arrived when as the man died.
The homicide occurred just before 4 a.m.
Another scene at nearby 35th Avenue and Walnut Street may be related, but, since police are not releasing many details at this time, it is unclear how.
