Woman claims she was shot during carjacking in Denver early Wednesday

Victim in stable condition, according to police

DENVER - Denver police say the woman who claimed she was shot during a carjacking is not providing much help with the investigation.

The woman initially told police two men shot her and took her dark blue 2006 Chevy Impala near the Knox Street light rail station at about 1:30 a.m.

However, Sgt. Steve Warneke told 7NEWS Reporter Tyler Lopez the car was found in southwest Denver, but the color does not match the description provided by the alleged victim.

Sgt. Warneke said information in this case is "very hard to come by."

Police said they do not have an accurate description of the men involved and are no longer describing them as Hispanic men.

Witness Gene Vigil said he helped the injured woman into the John R. Mulroy Apartments at 3550 W. 13th Ave., and gave her a doggie bag so that she wouldn't bleed all over the lobby.

Another witness, who asked to remain anonymous, called 911.

Residents say the building has security cameras and 7NEWS is working to obtain any possible footage.

The victim is in stable condition, according to a tweet from Denver police.

Now investigators hope to process the car and re-interview the victim.
