Yesterday, we told you aboutthe early morning shooting of a woman in a parking lot on East 40th Avenue
. Just in: A release from the Denver Coroner's Office slightly amending the address where the crime took place, from 2535 E. 40th to 2530, an area captured in the graphic above (if you have problems seeing the image, click "View Larger Map"), and identifying the victim as "Mr. Barbara Irish." Pretty sure the "Mr." part is unintentional, considering that she's subsequently described as a 53-year-old woman. See the rest of the info below:
