One person is dead following a burglary near 10th Avenue and Monaco Parkway in the Montclair neighborhood.
After receiving calls about three men trying to burglarize a home in the quiet, wealthy neighborhood, Denver police officers arrived at the scene around noon to find one person dead and another person trying to flee, said Division Chief Ron Thomas. Officers ran that suspect down and arrested him.
“We’ll still have to uncover some facts to see if there’s any relationship between those two — if that is a homeowner or one of the suspects,” Thomas said about the deceased person and the person they arrested after a chase.
Around the same time of the chase, officers heard gunshots about a half-block north, where police said they found someone trying to carjack someone else. Officers “engaged” the alleged carjacker and eventually shot that suspect, who has been taken to a hospital, Thomas said. No officers were injured.
Police believe the car-jacking is related to the burglary.
Police did not provide a detailed description of the suspects, but said one may have escaped in a black Honda sedan with a temporary license plate.
