The DPD tweeted about the first incident at 1:21 p.m. on May 6, noting that Denver police officers were investigating a shooting at the 300 block of Broadway. The DPD staged an update about the incident shortly before 3 p.m., when a Broadway closure was still in effect; an announcement that the route had reopened was shared a little over four hours later. Here's the video:
The major revelations were a description of the vehicle — a silver Chrysler 200 with the Colorado license plate ALOi76 — and word that a female driver was believed to be behind the wheel.
