DENVER — The Denver Office of the Medical Examiner identified Wednesday three of the four victims who were killed in a series of violent incidents in Denver this past weekend.

Early Saturday morning, two people were shot and killed and a woman wounded in a triple shooting in the Lowry neighborhood. Nicholas Dansby, 29, was arrested in connection with that shooting.

The victims were later identified as Henry Bizimana, 23, and Alpha Balde, 28. An autopsy revealed that Bizimana died from multiple gunshot wounds. While Balde died from a single gunshot wound.

On Sunday, police were called to the Montbello neighborhood on a report of a shooting near the intersection of Titan Court and Titan Way.

Police say a man, who has been identified as Gabriel Taylor, 20, was transported to the hospital with unknown injuries. He was later pronounced deceased from a single gunshot wound. Police have released suspect information in this case.

The identity of a man in a separate homicide case Saturday night has not been released. His body was found near a 7-Eleven in the 1900 block of East Colfax Avenue. Police are still looking for a suspect in connection with this case.

None of the incidents appear to be connected. The two murder suspects remain on the run.
