DENVER -- One man was killed in a late-night shooting Wednesday, the Denver Police Department said.

Police worked overnight searching for evidence, mostly in the parking lot of a Wendy's restaurant at 550 Sheridan Boulevard.

Several evidence markers could be seen in the parking lot.

Initial reports indicated the shooting was the result of a running gun battle between people in two vehicles.

Before midnight, police said a man had been killed and the death was being investigated as a homicide.

Police had no information on a suspect.

Sheridan Boulevard was closed in both directions for several hours but has since reopened.
