Shots fired at 27th and S Streets

UPDATE 12/13/2015 4:38 PM

Changed the headline, from “Shooting” to “Shots fired” because no one was actually shot.

From the RTD: “At the scene they found an adult male who had been shot at but was not struck or harmed. The suspects were last seen heading west on S Street in a black SUV.”



Got word on this from a few different directions, nothing officially confirmed yet.

i wouldn’t make it public that you or a loved one saw it go down. tell the cops if you choose but it can often be unsafe for the witness of a crime.

You tell the cops, whoever gets accused knows it’s you anyway. To make a difference, we need to collectively and publicly stand up against the violence.

not necessarily on the accused know its you anyway, but i do agree with standing up to crime.

My wife and talked about this, and we decided to “go public” because we wanted others to know that a neighborhood watch isn’t just a thing of the past.

Speaking of which, let me give a huge shout out to my neighbors on 27th, who quickly rushed outside to help my wife get to safety. (There were also several workers in the area who witnessed the shooting and spoke with the police.)

We love this community, and we believe that we’re stronger together. If we can risk outing them publicly, maybe they’ll stop feeling brave enough to shoot at others publicly, too.

Just heard a series of gunshots coming from somewhere around at about midnight tonight (Sunday night). So fed up with the fireworks.

@ Mars I heard the same. Usually hearing that many shots is followed by hearing sirens.
