Demonstrators demand transparency at state Capitol following LoDo shooting

Denver7: On Thursday, demonstrators gathered on the steps of the Colorado Capitol to demand transparency following a shooting early Sunday morning in downtown Denver.

During a press conference on Wednesday, the Denver Police Department shared additional details on the shooting that happened around 1:30 a.m. on Sunday near 20th and Larimer streets, including still images of the moments leading up to the gunfire. Denver police said three of their officers fired seven shots after a suspect pointed a gun in the direction of officers.

Various community organizers have taken to social media to express disapproval of DPD’s press conference, saying it fell short of providing transparency.
