Officers closed off an area outside the parking garage at the station with crime tape and referred to the case as a death investigation. The station is located at 9th and Sheridan Boulevard in Denver.

A police spokesman said it wasn’t clear if the shooting happened in the parking area or closer to the light rail trains pickup and dropoff areas.

Police say there is no ongoing search for a suspect.

Train service wasn’t disrupted by the investigation.

This isn’t the first shooting recently at this RTD station. A man was killed there during a robbery last February. One of the suspects is an illegal immigrant who was out on bond and should have been in ICE custody.
