At least 1 dead, 4 injured in downtown Denver shooting, authorities say

DENVER — A person was killed and 4 others were injured in a shooting that happened on Monday afternoon in downtown Denver.

Spokesman of Denver Police, Doug Schepman told reporters that as of now no arrests had been made and police is still not sure if there was actually more than one shooters. Authorities have still not immediately released any kind of information on potential suspects.

“It is too early in the investigation as of now to be able to comment on what happened here and why,” Schepman told.

Denver Health Medical Center spokesman Simon Crittle told that the paramedics from the hospital have responded in regards to the shooting and have found one person dead at the scene. A total of four victims were known to be in stable condition on Monday night, police told via Twitter.

Earlier Police had said that three people were wounded, and not four.

Officers have closed a number of streets in the area, about 3 blocks from Coors Field, Colorado Rockies’s residence, after police first got the reports of gunshots at around 4 p.m. MST.

An eyewitness told Bigtime Daily that he saw a man who was holding a handgun in both of his hands fire into a group of indigent people, and one of the persons from that group fired back.

“Oh my God, oh my God,” Hisam Derani said. “I saw him reach the crowd.”

Derani also told that he was coming back from home after work when he heard the six gunshots. He told he saw one or two shots being fired before he ducked.

He told that a gunman got into a car, quickly slammed the door and drove away.

“Downtown is a very populated area for sure, and in order to have multiple gunshots fired in such an area is really concerning,” Schepman said.

January Predicted to be Poor for Most Businesses in US

Every year, the month of January slows down the speed of business in the US. But this time, the situation for business may deteriorate as the federal government shutdown would likely to make it worse. The good thing is that the shutdown would not last for a long period of time, hence it would be easy to regain the momentum soon after the shutdown comes to an end. According to reports, federal workers have been absent or working without pay since December 22. But still, there will be no issue for them in receiving a paycheck from the US government between Dec 28 and Jan 3. This paycheck will be smaller than as usual but the next one which is due on Jan 11 would only come if Donald Trump and Congress give their consent for it.

The economist, Stephen Fuller, head of the Stephen S. Fuller Institute at George Mason University told that it is not possible right now to tell how many people would get affected due to the shutdown. According to economists and marketing experts, the contractors and many industries would bear the brunt of this shutdown. And mostly, small businesses such as retailers inside federal buildings and food trucks that largely depend on the spending of federal workers and contractors.

Since the shutdown period always remains slow every year so it won’t get reflected in the economic indicators much. People restrict their spending post-Christmas so there will not be much loss due to the shutdown. Also, tourism during this phase of time also remains on the lower-side so this is not a significant subject to worry. As is the tradition every year, if the Trump government pays the paycheck to federal workers once the shutdown is over, then it will not affect the economy much.

“Because it’s the slowest time of the year, the side effects are considerably smaller just because the economy is in suspended animation at this point,” Fuller said. If the continues for over six month then it would affect everyone otherwise there is no such need to worry due to it.
