DENVER (CBS4) – Two children were killed Wednesday morning in a shooting incident in a Northeast Denver home that claimed three lives and injured another.

The shooting left two children and one adult female dead in the 4900 block of Pearl Street.

Another child who was injured survived and was rushed to the hospital. That child was in surgery at 8:55 a.m.

According to Radio Reference, police could be heard speaking to dispatch about a father and child, “It looks like the father is hysterical, crying but says the 2-year-old is still breathing.”

Denver Police Lt. Matt Murray said officers are not searching for a gunman. Officers were awaiting a warrant to search the home for evidence.

“It appears to be an isolated incident. We are talking to people, we are talking to witnesses but we have no indication that there is a shooter out there on the loose in Denver,” said Murray.

All of the children involved appear to be young however police cannot confirm how, and if, the woman and children were related.

“All of the children appear to be under the age of 10. However because we have not been able to verify identity I can’t tell you exactly how old each child was,” said Murray. “They are young children.”

Emergency crews responded at approximately 6:55 a.m. to the house, which is located near the intersection with 49th and Pearl in the Globeville neighborhood.

They discovered three people who were dead and one person who was hurt. Shortly after 7 a.m. an ambulance took what appeared to be a young person to a hospital. That person had been wheeled out of the house on a stretcher.

Police said the shooting was being investigated as a death investigation until more information becomes available.

Denver Police Chief Richard White said there are children involved in the incident, but wouldn’t elaborate. He said names and ages of the victims won’t be released pending notification of family members.
