Colorado murder suspects sought by police

North of Colorado Springs, Denver police are looking for suspects in connection with a recent murder and two separate assaults.

As for the homicide, the Denver fire department was called to an address on the city's southeast side around 2 p.m. by a resident who had found his or her roommate unresponsive. When fire department personnel arrived on the scene, they found a man who had evidently been stabbed, so they notified police. The man was taken to Swedish Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

Police have not released any additional information about what they believe led to the man's death.

The assaults were discovered a day earlier around 2 a.m. when police responded to calls around the area of 15th and Market Streets. There, they found two men on separate corners of the intersection. Both men had suffered what police have only described as "serious injuries."

The police have said it seems the men were injured as they were trying to leave the area, but have not commented further on the circumstances that led up to the men sustaining their injuries. A large crowd had gathered around the men and police hope someone in the throng will be able to provide answers that will fill in the picture as to what exactly happened.

Anyone with information about either incident is asked to contact the Denver Police Department.

Although the facts in each instance are as yet unclear, it is not hard to imagine they arose from situations in which someone's emotions got the best of him or her. Anger and frustration can sometimes well up and lead people to do things they would not normally do. When that happens, the consequences can be very severe. Working with a criminal defense attorney is one option people sometimes choose to make sure the criminal justice system does not run roughshod over their rights.
