Local News

DENVER (KDVR) — The Denver Police Department announced Wednesday night that it is investigating a “double-murder and suicide” in the Platt Park neighborhood.

On Wednesday afternoon, officers were called to a home in the 1700 block of South Logan Street on a welfare check.

When officers arrived, they found a man, woman and baby girl dead inside the residence. They all appear to have died from gunshot wounds, police said.

“Based on preliminary findings, this appears to be a domestic-related double-murder and suicide,” a DPD spokesperson said.

The Denver Office of the Medical Examiner will release the names of the man, woman and child.

“It’s a complete shock,” said Callie, a neighbor. “From every interaction we had with them, this is not something we would’ve expected. They were nice, excited about their child and we got to meet her a couple weeks ago. This is just complete shock. I have no understanding of how something like this happened from every interaction we’ve had with them. They’ve just been amazing neighbors.”

Police said they do not plan to release additional information at this point.

“When I found out it was domestic, open-and-closed kind of case, we were feeling a little better we didn’t have to fear for our own safety. It was an isolated incident,” said Devon Mearns, another neighbor.

The investigation is ongoing.
