Ten people were hurt in a shooting early on Tuesday in Denver, close to where basketball fans had gathered to commemorate the Nuggets’ first NBA victory. A suspect was captured.

The event happened at around 12:30 a.m., or approximately 3 and a half hours after the game, and three of the patients were in critical condition, according to a statement from the Denver Police Department. The suspect, a male, was one of the seven people with injuries deemed not to be life-threatening.

The incident took place approximately a mile from Ball Arena, the site of Monday night’s Nuggets victory over the Miami Heat.

According to police spokesman Doug Schepman, the circumstances that led to the fight that resulted in the shooting are still being investigated. It did take place where there was the biggest crowd of people enjoying that night.

Evidence markers and a taped-off perimeter surrounded the incident.

He claimed that a small throng was there when the shooting occurred, but it had “diminished quite a bit at that point.” He claimed that the incident occurred in an area where many people may have left pubs after the game.
