13-year-old suspect in Manual High School parking lot shooting arrested

DENVER -- A 13-year-old suspect in a triple shooting in the Manual High School parking lot on Thanksgiving has been arrested, the Denver Police Department said Sunday.

The teen was taken into custody in northeast Denver without incident on Sunday, police said.

Police released the suspect's name and picture late Saturday night, and considered him armed and dangerous.

The shooting injured a woman and two boys in the parking lot of the school at 1700 E. 28th Ave. about noon Thursday.

The woman was shot in the leg, one of the males was shot in the arm and the other male suffered multiple gunshot wounds.

Police said the three victims had been inside a parked car outside the school.

It is not clear what led to the shooting.

Editor's note: The name and picture of the suspect was earlier released by police, who considered him armed and dangerous. Because the suspect is a minor and has not been charged as an adult, the suspect's name and photo will not be used.
