Three separate shootings early Saturday morning have left two men dead and at least four more wounded.

First, at about 3 in the morning, Denver Police indicated that one man was killed in a shooting at Cherokee and Arkansas:

Barely 30 minutes later, police said that a shooting at 38th and High Street injured three people.

And within the hour, police announced that another man had died in a different shooting at 5500 Carson Street.

Both deaths are being investigated as homicides, Denver Police say.
