DENVER – A 16-year-old boy was identified Saturday as one of the two people killed following a Wednesday afternoon shooting in Denver.

Anthony Martinez, 16, and Raymond Flores, 25, were taken to a hospital following the shooting in the area of 6th Avenue and North Perry Street.

Both were killed from a gunshot wound and their manner of death was ruled a homicide, a spokesperson for the Denver Office of the Medical Examiner said in a statement.

A third male was last listed in critical condition. His condition remains unknown at this time.

Angel Matthew Gallegos, 18, was being held for investigation of two counts of first-degree murder and one count of first-degree assault following the triple shooting, according to the Denver Police Department.

It’s unclear if Gallegos had been assigned an attorney or public defender over the weekend.

Details about what led to the shooting have not been released.
