DENVER -- A man was critically injured after being shot in northeast Denver on Tuesday afternoon, the Denver Police Department said.

Shots were fired about 3 p.m. in the 3500 block of Columbine Street. A woman said she was sitting in her living room with her 5-year-old when she heard three pops.

She first thought the noise was fireworks, but when she went outside, she found a Hispanic man with a gunshot to his face wound lying in the grass next to the sidewalk in front of her house. She said the man was awake and breathing.

Other neighbors told the woman that witnesses told her the man walked by and saw a table and a chair in front of a home and asked if he could come back to pick them up.

The neighbor said yes. When the man came back with his girlfriend, a car drove by and someone inside fired shots, witnesses said.

Police did not give out any suspect information.
