2 killed, one wounded in shooting in southwest Denver

DENVER -- At least least two men died and one was wounded in a shooting near Sixth Avenue and Perry Street on Wednesday afternoon, the Denver Police Department said.

On Friday afternoon, DPD said it arrested 18-year-old Angel Matthew Gallegos in connection with the shooting. He is being held for investigation of two counts of first-degree murder and one count of first-degree assault.

Surveillance video captured the shooting. It shows the men pulling into the parking lot in a dark SUV.

Moments later, several men begin running in the parking lot. One man is seen what appears to be a gun that sends off a puff of smoke.

All three victims were taken to a hospital where two were pronounced dead and the third remains in critical condition, police said.

Police closed streets in the area as they searched for two suspects. The perimeter they set up was lifted later in the afternoon.

Police said they were looking for two Hispanic male suspects, one wearing a red hoodie and the other wearing a dark T-shirt and shorts.

They left the scene on foot on westbound Sixth Avenue Frontage Road.

It is unknown what led to the shooting.
