Original item, 8:02 a.m. May 9: A mother's worst nightmare took place early on Mother's Day morning. A party on the 2100 block of West Gill Place featuring the front-door sign "All our visitors bring happiness -- some by coming, some by going" boiled onto the street and gunfire erupted, injuring one man and killing a seventeen-year-old girl.
Neither the girl, who was pronounced dead at the scene shortly after 2:22 a.m. yesterday, or the male gunshot victim have been identified thus far. In the meantime, representatives of the Denver Police Department are continuing to look for several witnesses who fled the scene after the shooting, in the hope they can ID the shooter.
