The incident occurred near a nightclub and music hall as bars were closing in downtown Denver, the Associated Press reported. Two people who sustained serious injuries were immediately taken to a hospital, though their condition was not reported, according to the Denver Police Department.

One man died of his injuries, three people suffered minor injuries and two others sustained non-life-threatening injuries, according to police. No arrests were made in connection with the incident as of Sunday evening.

“A total of 6 individuals were injured by gun fire. 1 of those victims an adult male, died from his injuries,” the department said in a statement Sunday evening.
