DENVER – The three people found dead outside a warehouse near S. Broadway and I-25 last week all died from gunshot wounds, the Denver Office of the Medical Examiner said Monday.

Denver police said last week that they believe all three people who were found dead were homeless, but did not at the time release many details about how they were discovered.

On Monday, the coroner said the causes of death for all three were gunshot wounds and said their deaths were classified as homicides. The coroner’s office identified the dead as Christopher Zamudio, 45, Nicole Boston, 28, and Jerome Coronado, 39.

The bodies of the three were discovered just before 11 a.m. last Thursday. Police at the time called their deaths “suspicious in nature” and said they were being investigated as homicides.

Police still haven’t linked a stabbing that happened nearby earlier that morning and the triple murder. Officers spent late last week patrolling the area and stepped up security for homeless people in the area.

A suspect in the shootings hadn't been identified as of Monday.

Denver police ask anyone with information about the incident or who saw anything suspicious in the area between Wednesday night and 11 a.m. Thursday to call 720-913-STOP.
