2 children and 1 woman killed in Denver shooting
DENVER (AP) — Two young children and a woman were killed and a third child was wounded in a shooting at a northeast Denver house, police said Wednesday. That wounded child was
in critical condition at Denver Health Medical Center. The shooting appeared to have been isolated and there was no indication a shooter was on the loose, said police Major Crimes Cmdr. Ron Saunier.
"Is there a mass killer or someone running around? At this time we don't believe so," he said. Police declined to say whether it was a murder-suicide. The names and relationships of the victims weren't immediately released.
Police Chief Robert White called the deaths "a horrible tragedy." The house where the bodies were found is in an industrial area of warehouses and a trucking terminal, near the National Western Stock Show complex.
Neighbor Debbie Martinez said the house was recently remodeled, and she saw a family of five — two adults and three children — move in about six months ago. "They seem like outgoing people. They didn't bother anybody," she said.
