DENVER (CBS4) - Denver police say a man died after being shot early Sunday morning in the LoDo neighborhood. Officers responded to the area near 20th and Market Streets at around 2:45 a.m.
CBS4 saw crime scene tape up still near 21st and Market Streets several hours later. CBS4 learned all three males are relatives.
Family members of the victim identified him as Tre Williams. They say he was a son, a father and a football player. Williams reportedly played in a small local league which helps athletes prepare for college or arena football.
Williams was a cornerback for the Mile High Sting. His coach says the football community is heartbroken.
"He was one of those that got real close to me and from anybody that's dealt with Tre, he's always, 'I got you.' You asked him to do anything," said the coach.
Another man and a juvenile male, police say, were also shot. Officials tell CBS4 they're still determining who shot who and why. They say there were multiple shooters and multiple weapons, however they wouldn't say what kind of weapons were used.
Investigators want to talk to anyone who knows or saw what happened. They are urged to call Crime Stoppers at 720-913-7867.
