Early this morning, members of the Northglenn Police Department were called to the 11600 block of Grant Street. They soon came upon blood. A lot of it.
The NPD says a male adult and a male juvenile were found stabbed nearby; they've been transported to Denver Health. So, too, was an eighteen-year-old male found at 11701 Washington Street -- but he died of his wounds.
Jose Juan Nunez, twenty, has been charged with first-degree murder in relation to these crimes. Look below to check out an interactive graphic showing the Grant Street area to which the cops were called (if you have problems seeing the image, click "View Larger Map"), as well as additional details:
