Two people were shot, one fatally, overnight near 16th Avenue and Downing Street in Denver’s City Park West neighborhood, police said.

The shooting happened in the 1100 block of 16th Avenue, according to a 1:46 a.m. post on X by the Denver Police Department.

Two people were injured, police said in the initial report.


A 7:40 a.m. update reported that one of the victims, a man, had died and police have started a homicide investigation.

The killing is the second fatal shooting in City Park West in a week and happened about six blocks from the first one.

An Uber driver was shot and killed Monday night in a seemingly random attack, and a security guard who stopped to help was also shot and had his car stolen, according to an arrest affidavit.
