Police say the suspects were arrested on charges related to illegal possession of firearms.
Some people responded to DPD on social media saying they were in a bar or a hotel near the area. One person reported being ushered inside the bar as police investigated.
DPD tells CBS4 a shelter-in-place order was issued for two floors at the Maven Hotel Denver. No one was evacuated.
Police say the suspects are previous felons. CBS4 saw one white SUV being towed which police say might be part of the investigation.
Investigators don’t believe this was associated with All-Star festivities.
No one was hurt.
