...We don't know the facts yet for the incident that occurred, Coffman said.

...We need to understand why it occurred, was it gang-related, not gang-related, a random mass shooting as in the situation with central?

...Once we understand that, it will help us navigate a path forward....

Are there any suspects that have been taken into custody?

No one is in custody and police have not said if there are any suspects at this time.

Alvertis Simmons, a civil rights activist spoke with Fox 31 Denver and said, ...It's very clear we have to do something about these guns. Young people should not be getting shot, getting gunned down the way they've been gunned down this week.
