DENVER (KDVR) – The Denver Police Department is investigating a shooting that took place at East 33rd Avenue and Hudson Street in the Park Hill neighborhood Sunday morning.
Police said they received a call about the shooting at 3:09 a.m.
Police said the shooting happened at an after-hours club in a building that belonged to Hell’s Lovers Motorcycle Club.
There was evidence that multiple guns were fired in the incident, according to police, as well as evidence of gunfire outside of the club. Police were determining whether any gunfire happened inside the club.
Police said one man was pronounced dead and that there were seven total victims.
On Sunday afternoon, police provided an update and said another victim, a man, had died of his injuries.
“Unfortunately, with the majority of the victims still in surgery, they are unavailable to us. We haven’t had a chance to talk to them,” said Commander Matt Clark with Denver Police.
On Monday night, DPD reported that two victims were released from the hospital and three remained hospitalized, but are expected to survive.
Just before 9:30 a.m. the SWAT team showed up and tried to coax people out of the club, multiple people were handcuffed.
Police said they were unsure how many people were inside the club at the time of the incident, but officers are continuing to review surveillance video.
No major roads were closed due to the shooting. The investigation is ongoing.
