A pedestrian and at least one person in a vehicle exchanged gunfire Wednesday afternoon in downtown Denver near a federal courthouse.
The shooters were not targeting the courthouse or anyone inside, Denver Police Department spokeswoman Christine Downs said. No one was injured.
The shooting happened around 1 p.m. near 20th and Champa streets, which is where the Alfred A. Arraj U.S. Courthouse is located. Federal agents, who were nearby, stopped the vehicle, Downs said. One person was taken into custody.
Police do not know what led to the shooting, which happened as Denver police Chief Paul Pazen was holding a news conference to talk about new partnership with federal agencies to crack down on gun crimes.
