Two children under 10 years old and a woman were killed, and a third child was wounded in an apparent shooting at a house in northeast Denver, police said Wednesday.
That child was in critical condition at Denver Health Medical Center.
The shooting appeared to have been isolated and there was no indication a shooter is on the loose, said police Major Crimes Cmdr. Ron Saunier.
"Is there a mass killer or someone running around? At this time we don't believe so," he said.
The neighborhood is in an industrial area, surrounded by warehouses and a trucking terminal, near the National Western Stock Show complex.
Neighbor Debbie Martinez said the house was recently remodeled, and she saw a family of five — two adults and three children — move in about six months ago.
"They seem like outgoing people. They didn't bother anybody," she said.
On a corner about a block from the scene, members of nearby Providence Bible Church gathered in a circle to prayer.
"Basically, we pray for the community," said Jose Rojas, pastor of the church.
"This is the horror of the whole country. There are all these shootings," he said. "I think it's too much, too much to see innocent people being killed."
The deaths came as the Colorado Legislature considered stricter gun laws and President Barack Obama tried to rally national support for a ban on assault weapons.
