DENVER (CBS4) – Friday night the quiet hallways of an apartment building near the University of Denver Campus exploded with gunfire.

One man is dead and Denver Police say they are looking for the killer.

It happened Friday night just after 10 p.m. at Trivium Apartments.

The third floor apartment was locked with a padlock Saturday morning and Crime Scene Investigation markers show where at least one bullet went through the inside of the apartment, crossed the hallway and struck the neighbor across the hallways’s bathtub.

Denver Police don’t believe the victim was a DU student and they don’t believe this was a random killing.
