DENVER (KDVR) — As thousands flocked to lower downtown in celebration of the Rockies Opening Day weekend, Denver Police Department responded to calls of a shooting in a highly-populated area.
The Downtown Denver Partnership estimated that 300,000 people would be downtown throughout the day. Local businesses and law enforcement were expecting major crowds in the LoDo area as fans were eager to celebrate the first Rockies home opener since the start of COVID-19.
