US police found three people shot to death on Wednesday in a home in Adams County outside Denver, the capital of Colorado.
Police officials said they received a call from a woman at about 7:20 a.m. and arrived at a home on Cragmore Street, just northwest of the US 36 and Interstate 25 interchange to find the dead people.
“A call came in from a hysterical female who said there was a disturbance at the home and hung up immediately,” said Cmdr. Terrance O’Neill.
Also, Sheri Catalina, who was nearby before the shootings took place, said she overheard a man and a woman rowing outside the home.
O’Neill said that they already had “a person of interest” and that officers were trying to track him down, however, he added that the investigation would be a “long, meticulous search”.
Police said that the suspect would be a Hispanic man who was seen when he was leaving the home in a black Jeep Wrangler with a hard top.
Every year, more than 30,000 people are shot and killed in the United States. The US averages 87 gun deaths each day as a function of gun violence, with an average of 183 injured, according to the University of Chicago Crime Lab and the Centers for Disease Control.
About 4.5 million firearms are sold annually in the United States at a cost of 2 to 3 billion dollars.
