A shooting incident in Denver, early Tuesday, led to nine people getting injured after celebrations of the Nuggets’ maiden NBA championship victory, according to police reports. A suspect is now in custody.

The Denver Police Department stated that the event occurred around 12:30 a.m., leaving three of the victims critically injured. The location of the shooting was roughly a mile away from Ball Arena, where the Nuggets triumphed over the Miami Heat on Monday night.

Police spokesperson Doug Schepman addressed the situation, stating, “The exact circumstances leading to this confrontation, which culminated in gunshots, is currently under investigation.” He added that the shooting took place where a large crowd was celebrating during the night.

Although a small crowd remained in the area at the time of the incident, Schepman noted that it had “significantly reduced by that point.” The shooting area, he said, was a place where many people would have likely exited bars post-game.

Witnesses are currently being interviewed by the police and Schepman described the ongoing investigation as being “extensive.”
