DENVER — Denver police are investigating a domestic violence-related shooting that left three people, including an infant, injured, and one person dead.

The shooting happened Monday around 11:35 p.m. along the 10000 block of E. Girard Avenue, according to the Denver Police Department.

"I heard arguing and several minutes later I heard gunshots and somebody yelling for help and that somebody was in the street dying," said Michael Honeycott.

He said he witnessed the shooting.

One person died at the scene and two others — including a juvenile female and a man— had been shot and transported to a hospital. The juvenile is in critical condition with life-threatening injuries, police said. The man is in critical but stable condition.

During the incident, an infant — the child of the juvenile female and suspected shooter — was also injured. The suspect dropped the baby, seriously injuring the child, who is now in critical condition, police said.

Police confirmed the incident was a domestic violence situation and the person who had died was the shooter. Police said he died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. He was identified Wednesday as 18-year-old Ziyere Daniel.

Around 2 a.m., police said they believed they had accounted for everybody involved.

"The violence needs to stop," Honeycott said. "It is coming too close to families and tearing families apart."
