Who Are The Victims Of The Denver Coliseum Shooting & Stabbing?
According to reports, multiple people were wounded in a shooting and stabbing incident at the Denver Coliseum in Denver, Colorado on Saturday afternoon. And while details about what happened are still scarce right now, there is some limited information out there about who the victims of the Denver Coliseum shooting and stabbing are.
According to 9News, a Colorado NBC affiliate, the incident (or incidents) actually took place at the intersection of Humboldt Street and East 46th Avenue, which sits just across the I-70 freeway from the decades-old sports and entertainment venue. There's no information available just yet about the victim's names or identities, but there is some very bad news about their conditions ― according to the Denver Post, at least nine people were taken to nearby hospitals in the aftermath of the incident, and at least one person died.
While the cause and nature of the violence isn't yet definitively known, the Denver Post also quoted an anonymous witness who claimed that the incident involved rival biker gangs. The Denver Coliseum has been hosting the Colorado Motorcycle Expo this weekend, which boasts "the country’s largest indoor motorcycle swap meet," according to its website.
According to the Denver Post's John Ingold, there's currently heavy police presence at Denver Health, which is where the victims were taken ― at about 4:40 p.m. ET, the hospital tweeted that everyone on the campus wass safe, but that their emergency room was on lockdown.
At about 6 p.m. ET, Denver Health released what they said would be their final update on the hospitalized victims, tweeting that one person was killed in the attack, while three are in critical condition and three more are in stable condition. The tweet said that only 7 victims were transported by Denver Health, which appears to contradict prior reports suggesting that nine people were hospitalized.
