According to arrest documents released on Tuesday, surveillance video from Coors Field captured the shooting.

“The victim is observed arguing with a black male in black clothing. A short time later, a dark-skinned male wearing black pants and a light-colored hoodie appears and then fires a gun striking the victim. The victim runs down the stairs as the suspect continues to shoot at him. The victim drops a backpack and falls to the ground. While on the ground the suspect runs down the stairs and stands approximately five feet from the victim and fires four to five more shots at the victim,” according to the arrest affidavit.

The shooting remains under investigation, according to DPD.
