DENVER – Two men were shot just before midnight on the east side of the Westwood neighborhood during what police called a suspected argument.
Denver police said the two men were taken to a hospital in critical condition but that they were stable. A spokesperson said no suspects had been arrested as of 11 a.m.
The shooting happened near the intersection of W. Virginia Ave. and S. Eliot St. – close to the same location where five people were shot, one juvenile fatally, on Aug. 1.
The shooting capped off a violent day of shootings in the area — with at least 15 people shot in Denver, Lakewood and Aurora on Sunday.
Early Sunday morning, a man was shot and killed in the 2400 block of North Downing Street in Denver. A man was also shot and killed in Aurora early Sunday at an apartment in the Centre Point neighborhood. Nine people were shot in a possible drive-by shooting at a family gathering in the 1400 block of West Byers in Denver Sunday afternoon, and two more people were shot in a drive-by in Lakewood, along the 5400 block of the 6th Avenue Frontage Road, just after 10:30 p.m.
Police have not said any of the shootings are related.
Denver police said the investigation into the shooting that happened just before midnight was ongoing Monday
