Victim still in critical condition following incident at LoDo rock club
DENVER — The victim of an apparent assault at a LoDo rock club remained in critical condition Sunday, Denver police said. No suspects have been named or arrested.
The incident ahead of a scheduled Kottonmouth Kings performance at Summit Music Hall, 1902 Blake St., shut down Blake between 19th and 20th streets Saturday night.
The assault happened about 9 p.m. inside the packed concert hall. The victim, who reportedly fell during a fight and struck his head, was taken to the hospital and the concert was stopped.
“We are saddened by the senseless violence that happened prior to Kmk arriving at (the) venue,” the band posted on their Facebook page early Sunday morning. “We will plan on making the show up to the fans — Our thoughts (are) with the victim. Walk in peace, spread love.”
Earlier, the band tweeted: “There is no room for violence at a show or anywhere.”
On Sunday, the band held a make-up show at Hoodlam, a local hemp-friendly store.
Denver police initially reported that death investigators were on scene, but later clarified that the victim was still alive. DPD sent out a tweet saying that death investigators often respond when victims are in critical condition.
