Denver cops' first blast of info about the crime is encompassed in a two-part tweet. Here's part one....

...and here's part two:

Even before the DPD weighed in, Fox31's Chris Jose was already on the scene. Below, see one of his Twitpic dispatches....

...and another:

"PIO" stands for public-information officer -- meaning that the Denver Police Department deems what went down as sufficiently alarming that it's sending a spokesperson to address it. In the meantime, we're betting those nearby residents mentioned by Jose are already wide awake -- and have already double-checked the locks on their doors.

Why is this being called a "home invasion" when the police refer to it as a "burglary"? Confronting burglars in your home is not the same thing as a home invasion, a particular type of robbery/assault where suspects knowingly enter a home with occupants and terrorize them. "Robbery" stealing by use of force or threat of force. "Burglary" is breaking into a home, business or car and stealing with no force or threat of force against occupants. Was this actually a home invasion?
