DENVER — A large fight amid home opener celebrations in lower downtown Denver sent a DPD officer to the hospital Friday evening.

Around 7 p.m., officers responded to an area around 19th and Market streets on a report of multiple people fighting.

Police said a male officer responding to the brawl was struck by a thrown bottle and suffered a head laceration.

The officer was transported to the hospital where he was treated and released.

Authorities are looking for a suspect who threw the bottle but have yet to provide a description.

Police said a large crowd of people were in the area for the Rockies home opener.
