DENVER — A man was shot and killed during an alleged domestic violence incident in Denver's Gateway - Green Valley Ranch neighborhood Wednesday night.

The shooting happened just before 9 p.m. Wednesday at a home in the 3900 block of North Malta Street. When officers arrived, they found a 59-year-old man who had been shot. He was taken to the hospital, where he later died.

The Denver Office of the Medical Examiner will release the man's identity at a later time.

Investigators believe the shooting was a domestic violence incident. The Denver Police Department said the man and the suspect — identified as 59-year-old Valerie London-Griffin — were involved in an altercation before the shooting.

London-Griffin was arrested and is being held for investigation of second-degree murder, according to Denver PD. The Denver District Attorney's Office will make the final determination on charges.
