DENVER — Two people were killed in an overnight shooting that injured four others, Denver police said.

Police said the shooting took place during a house party in the 5000 block of N. Orleans Ct. near the intersection of East 50th Place in the city's Green Valley Ranch neighborhood.

Denver7 reporter Adria Iraheta was at the shooting location early Sunday morning and said it was an active scene with multiple Denver police vehicles in the roadway.

Police initially said there were six victims and the extent of their injuries was unknown. It was unclear if all of the injured victims were shot. DPD later updated that two of the victims — an adult male and a juvenile male — were pronounced dead.

The victims were identified by the Denver Office of the Medical Examiner as Omar Enriquez-Magdaleno, 19, and Giovanni Heredia, 17. Enriquez-Magdaleno died from a gunshot wound, and his death was ruled a homicide. Heredia died from multiple gunshot wounds, and his death was also ruled a homicide.

A GoFundMe online fundraiser has been created to help Heredia's family.

Police said a group of uninvited guests arrived at the party and were greeted by gunfire. There is evidence that multiple shots were fired from multiple firearms, according to police.

The deceased juvenile victim appears not to have been involved in the conflict. The involvement of the 26-year-old deceased victim, if any, remains under investigation.

Four victims remain hospitalized, one of them in critical condition, and they are at multiple hospitals in the Denver Metro area. Three of the surviving victims are adult males, the fourth surviving victim is a male, however, his age has not yet been confirmed.

On social media, DPD said the investigators were working to release information on a shooting suspect. They have yet to provide additional details surrounding the events that led up to the shooting. However, police said the shooting does not appear to be random.

Police ask anyone with information to contact Denver Metro Crimestoppers at 720-913-STOP.
