  1. Robert Chase says:

    “At approximately 7:11 a.m., Denver police responded to calls of an armed man shooting in the air at 8th and Lincoln. … The man moved south [sic] down Lincoln … Officers arrived at the scene of 11th and Lincoln …” — in order to get from 8th and Lincoln to 11th and Lincoln, he would have had to have moved north, not south.
