DENVER (KDVR) — Two teens and a man are dead after a shooting between moving vehicles that began in Denver and ended with a car crash on Friday night.
Police are looking for a suspect, whose vehicle is described as a dark-colored, mid-size sedan, according to the Denver Police Department. It’s unclear how many people were in the vehicle.
