February 2, 2019

DENVER (AP) — Two people were shot in southwest Denver during a confrontation with a federal task force organized by the U.S. Marshals Service.

Denver police spokesman Doug Schepman says the shooting happened after agents stopped a vehicle to arrest a suspect on a probation violation Friday afternoon. The Denver Post reports a man and a woman in the vehicle were shot by at least one federal officer and are hospitalized in critical condition.

Schepman says it’s not yet clear what prompted the shooting, and investigators are trying to determine if the suspects opened fire.

No officers were injured, and no other information was released.
