DENVER — Six people were shot, three killed, during a party at a Denver industrial office complex near the city's Montbello neighborhood early Saturday morning.

Denver police said officers responded to 12445 E. 39th Avenue around 1:37 a.m. Saturday on a report of a shooting. When they arrived, they found one victim with apparent gunshot wounds who was pronounced deceased on scene.

The Denver Office of the Medical Examiner identified the victim who died at the scene as Tyreck Cameron, 22.

Officers later learned that five other victims self-transported to local hospitals. Two of those five victims were pronounced deceased at the hospital and the other three are expected to survive.

The two victims who died at the hospital were identified as Tre'Joun Walker, 22, and Eric Miller, 25.

Preliminary information indicates that there was a party at an industrial storefront where there’s evidence indicating shots were fired from at least two firearms, police said in a news release.

"We do have evidence of guns being fired both inside and outside of the unit and evidence that multiple guns were discharged in this incident," Denver Police Cmdr. Matt Clark said.

Clark said the unit where the party occurred was a leased space occupied by a business. But Clark could not name the business and said it isn't immediately clear what type of business the owners are operating.

Neighboring businesses in the industrial office complex told Denver7 that they're concerned about their safety and want the owner of the complex to provide more security.

"I hope everything is okay because I am not able to go in there," business owner Patricia Alvarez said. "I'm worried about my business if it's okay or not."

Police said investigators are working to determine the circumstances that led up to the shooting as well as who was involved. No arrests have been made at this time.

Anyone with information is asked to call Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-713-9867.
