View Larger Map Early on the morning of Super Bowl Sunday, Denver Police were called to 675 S. Raleigh Street, an area captured in the graphic above (if you have problems seeing the image, click "View Larger Map"). A party had been going on there, but it apparently got way out of bounds. Cops found three men leaking blood, with one member of the trio, age 21, subsequently dying of his wounds.

No arrests thus far. Here's the DPD release about the crime:

On February 7, 2010, at 2:30 a.m., Denver Police received a call of a fight with injuries at 675 S. Raleigh Street. When officers arrived on scene they found three male victims suffering from apparent stab wounds. All three victims were transported to Denver Health Medical Center where one died.

The deceased is described as a 21-year-old male. The other two victims appear to have non-life threatening injuries.

Police learned through the investigation that there was small party going on in the residence when a fight broke out. The fight spilled out into the street and during the fight the three victims received their injuries. The reason for the fight and role of all of the individuals involved remains under investigation. No arrests have been made at this time.
