DENVER (AP) - Authorities are investigating after Shaquille Hargrove, a Buckley Air Force Base airman was shot to death in a popular area of downtown Denver as nearby bars were closing for the night.
A fellow airman was also injured, and has not been identified.

Police spokesman Sonny Jackson said in a news release that officers were called to the area of 15th and Market streets just after 2 a.m. Saturday and found a man with a gunshot wound. Hargrove was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Jackson says the man was shot during a "disturbance" involving a large group of people. He did not release any information about a suspect.

A news release from Buckley Air Force Base east of Denver confirmed the death and injury.
