Woman shot during house party in Englewood

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – A  woman was wounded during a shooting at a house party early Sunday.

Police went to a home on South Ogden Street near East Dartmouth Avenue around 2:30 a.m. 

Once at the scene, officers found the injured 18-year-old woman and she was taken to a local hospital, where she is recovering.

A neighbor told Denver7 reporter Amanda del Castillo that he heard six-to-seven gunshots.

"Pop-pop-pop-pop," Hugh Daly said. He's lived along South Ogden for more than ten years. Daly added, "I'm not sure what happened last night, but it was definitely out of the norm."

Barbara Klein said she lives across the street from where the shooting happened. She counted 11 gunshots and heard tires screeching before police arrived.

Klein said the house was a rental, "Some young women who were moving out and wanted a little gathering, and it kind of went viral on social media."

She believed the crowd grew out of hand and led to the shooting. The incident sparked new concern for a neighborhood she just recently moved to.

"We're all just a 'push of a button' on a computer away from becoming the center of something that may really not be what we're bargaining for," Klein said.

Police did not have any information on a suspect or any arrests.

Investigators were expanding the crime scene around 8 a.m. Sunday.
