DENVER — Police in Denver are investigating a double homicide at a former DoubleTree hotel that was converted into a shelter for unhoused individuals.

Police said two victims — a man and a woman — were located in one of the shelter’s residential rooms at the former hotel, 4040 N. Quebec Street, Saturday evening around 9:20 p.m.

Police declined to release additional details surrounding the investigation, including manner of death and the identities of the two victims. The Denver Office of the Medical Examiner is expected to release a report in the coming days.

No arrests have been made and suspect information was not available. Police said the investigation is ongoing.

The city purchased the former DoubleTree hotel last year as part of Mayor Mike Johnston’s goal of providing some form of housing to 1,000 people experiencing homelessness by the end of 2023.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-7867.
