Earlier a reader reported crime tape at 14th and Fairmont

Readers report around 7:45pm:

“One of my friends is giving statement after witnessing 4 shots fired on 11th near El Chucho. Unsure if suspects in custody or if injuries.”


“We were driving up 11th towards Park (over by Red Rocks) about 7:30, and heard what we thought were several gunshots and saw a couple of people running.”


“apparent shooting at 11 & Lamont”

    guarantee it has to do with the people that loiter outside the laundry mat and chinese carry out.

    I work on the street. There was shooting, but no one was hit. One man arrested with a gun. Yes, he is often at the laundromat. Has been described in the past as “an independent pharmaceutical distributor.”

    Anyone else hear the gunshots around 10:15pm in the 900 block of Shepherd (btwn Kansas and Georgia) last night? Heard one than a pause and then a really quick series of 6-10 shots. Saw police canvassing on Kansas and they told me shotspotter heard 11 shots, but they hadn’t found anything yet (about 25 mins later).

    Was in the dog park at the time it happened. Pretty surreal.
