DENVER — A 19-year-old man has been charged with two counts of attempted murder after attacking three people in Denver.

When police arrived, they reportedly found a second victim unconscious in the parking lot, along with several pools of blood. A third victim was identified later.

Leon is charged with two counts of first-degree criminal attempt to commit murder, two counts of first-degree assault and one count of third-degree assault.

He was scheduled to appear in court Thursday morning for arraignment.
