Denver shooting not random: Woman shot was targeted by shooter


In a shooting that occurred in the popular US tourist city, downtown of Denver, it was reported that a shooting had taken place with police called to the scene at 2:42 pm.

Denver police say the gunman shot a woman before apparently killing himself at a downtown office building located at 1536 Wynkoop Street.

Police spokesman Doug Schepman said officers quickly entered the building where they found the gunman dead, apparently from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. They also found a woman who had suffered several gunshot wounds. She was transported in critical condition, Schepman said.

“Based on our preliminary investigation, it appears that the victim was targeted by the suspect. … This was not a random shooting,” Schepman said.
