When officers arrived on scene they located an adult male suffering from a gunshot wound. The victim was transported to a local hospital where he later died from his injuries.

Investigators from the Major Crimes/Homicide Unit responded to the scene and are following on up leads and interviewing witnesses to determine what events lead up to the shooting and to identify potential suspect(s) .

The identity of the victim is not being released at this time and will be released by the Arapahoe County Coroner's Office once he has been positively identified and next of kin have been notified.
