DENVER — Police in Denver say they are looking for help identifying two suspects and two witnesses in a shooting Nov. 1 that killed one person and injured five others.

The shooting happened near Colfax Avenue and Verbena Street Nov. 1. Denver police said Wednesday they had arrested 24-year-old Dexter Martinez for investigation of murder and attempted murder charges in connection with the shooting.

On Friday, the Denver Police Department said they were looking for two more suspects in the shooting, including a male in a red hoody who police say was “associated with” a stolen Mazda 3 involved in the shooting, which was found dumped nearby after the shooting.

Police said they were also “associated with” the Mazda 3, which was stolen from Five Points on Sept. 24. It was recovered near 12th and Yosemite after the shooting.
