Graphic and more below.
At least in the beginning, an incident that took place this past Saturday night qualified as attempted murder.

Now, the adjective can be removed due to an unfortunate new development.

The death of one man hit in a triple shooting near 12th and Albion in Denver was announced late last night.

That turns the matter into a homicide investigation. And the gunman remains at large. Look below for what we know about the situation thus far.

Here's the first Denver police tweet about what happened. It was sent on Saturday night.

Cops reportedly arrived at the scene -- 1235 Albion Street, just east of Colorado Boulevard -- at about 10:30 p.m. According to Denver police spokesman Sonny Jackson, two men and a woman were chatting in a driveway when words were exchanged with someone in a nearby vehicle.

Then those words were swapped for bullets.

One man and the woman were struck, but their injuries weren't considered life-threatening. In contrast, the second man was rushed to a nearby hospital -- and as this Denver police tweet from last night confirms, he was unable to recover.

We have no description of the suspect beyond the vehicle in which he's thought to have escaped: a two-tone gray pickup truck.

The young man that died was a good friends son he was in college so before you speak about someone you should find out the truth about them this young had a wonderful life growning up and was a very lovable person and i hope the idiot that did this gets caught and gets life in prison because i am sure if it was him that died his parents would feel the same and everybody needs to understand guns dont kill people do and y in the hell or how in the hell did someone that is 20 years old get a permit to carry a gun so before you speak on the young man that died u should think about what is family is going thru because this young man was someone son brother grandchild uncle and nephew my prays go out to the family of rhe victim and to the parents of the shooter because this is a no win lost some one burys a chuld and the other loses a child to a prison

I could not agree more. I do not condone murder but one must watch what they say and do to people they know or don't know.

At least the responders.....i mean Denver police, did what they do best. Respond after the fact. What worthless folks them are..... @Juan_Leg
