DENVER (CBS4) – Police in Denver are searching for several people of interest following a triple homicide Friday night in the Northeast Park Hill neighborhood.
When police arrived at a home Friday night after an emergency call came in about a shooting they found a person who had been shot in the arm. That person was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
When officers went into the home they found two people dead. Another victim who apparently was hurt in the same incident was rushed to a hospital by others but that person died soon afterwards.
The residence is at the 3622 East 36th Avenue, near Hudson Street.
“It’s our basic understanding that this event is a drug deal that has gone extremely bad and as a result we have three people that are dead, one person that is injured,” Denver police Technician Tyrone Campbell said Saturday afternoon.
Authorities are now searching for several black males who police described as people of interest in the case. They were said to be driving a maroon Chevy Tahoe. The SUV is a 2015 model or newer and could have a temporary license plate.
Campbell said the vehicle may be headed out of state.
