We've already told you about two fatal shootings that took place on Sunday.

The first happened in the Lowry neighborhood outside an apartment complex where a party was taking place. The incident left two men dead.

The second went down last night at a residence near the intersection of Pontiac Street and Martin Luther King Boulevard. The shooting killed one man.

No arrests have been made in those two cases.

However, a suspect is in custody following the third Denver shooting in a 24-hour period.

The Denver Police Department tweeted about the shooting number three just after midnight on Monday, March 16:

The scene is near the intersection of Race Street and Bruce Randolph.

Once again, the victim of this shooting is a man. Once again, his identification will wait until his next of kin is notified.

In the meantime, investigators were on the scene when 7News' Eric Lupher tweeted this image....
