According to an initial statement from local police, the suspect—who had not been named in reports at the time of this writing—was also wounded. At first, police said the shooting—which occurred in the 2000 block of Market Street approximately a mile from the arena—had resulted in four victims.
In a subsequent update, the Denver Police Department amended that number to nine total victims. Of them, three are in critical condition; the remaining victims, as well as the suspect, sustained non-life-threatening injuries.
An investigation into the shooting remains ongoing. Complex has reached out to the Denver Police Department for additional comment. This story may be updated.
In a report from WBNS-TV, Doug Schepman—a department rep—was quoted as saying that the shooting broke out amid “the largest gathering” of post-game celebration participants. What spurred the shooting, however, remained undetermined at the time of this writing.
As highlighed in data from Gun Violence Archive, the Denver incident marks what is (at least) the 291st mass shooting in the U.S. this year alone.
