Police locate vehicle connected to Denver homicide investigation

DENVER — Police found the bodies of two deceased men inside a condo in Denver early Saturday.

At approximately 12:08 a.m, officers responded to the 5300 block of N. Memphis Street on a death investigation, said the Denver Police Department.

The Denver Coroner identified the victims as Richard E. Sims, 31,  and Dontai R. Carter, 23.

Both were shot in the head, the coroner reported.  Police are investigating the deaths as a homicide.

Detectives began a search for a 2001 Chevy Tahoe with Colorado plates 615-IQS, which they said was possibly taken from the residence.

Shortly before 3 p.m., DPD tweeted that they had located the Tahoe in Aurora.

The vehicle was occupied by several individuals, who fled from the car upon the arrival of officers, said DPD.

Police said they could not be certain that the individuals were connected to the incident.

However, they were able to detain two of the individuals, who were immediately taken into custody.

DPD could not confirm the two were being questioned about the double homicide.

At 3:25 p.m., DPD tweeted that a third individual who fled from the Tahoe was located and arrested on outstanding warrants.

The third suspect was a juvenile.

Police said they continue to look for the others and the investigation is on-going.

Upon arriving at the scene, FOX31 Denver crews found a huge perimeter set up around the area of 1020 S. Kalispell Street.

A FOX31 Denver viewer in the area also said she received a reverse 911 call, telling her to stay inside.
