Police investigate at the scene of a fatal shooting in the parking garage of the Promenade Place Luxury Apartments in Greenwood Village on Dec. 27, 2012.
GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo. — Police found a woman in her 20s dead in the parking garage of a Greenwood Village apartment complex Thursday morning. Residents say the body was found after gunshots were heard in the area.
Police have set up a staging area at the Promenade Place Apartments, located near the Denver Tech center at 5200 South Ulster Street. They confirmed that the woman’s body was found between the third and fourth floors of the parking garage.
Residents reported hearing two gunshots in the area at approximately 7:15 a.m. Police said the scene of the shooting showed signs of a struggle and that the woman’s body was discovered shortly after those shots were heard.
Someone appeared to be throwing items from a vehicle onto the ground of the parking garage, according to police. The woman’s body was discovered a short distance away from where those items were found.
As of 2:20 p.m., police were outside another apartment complex located at 4900 South Ulster Street, where they believe a suspect in the killing may be hiding. Officers were calling over bullhorns demanding the suspect turn himself in.
Earlier in the day, police towed a green Jeep Cherokee away from the light rail station at I-25 and East Belleview Avenue, which is near the scene of the shooting. At approximately 11:40 a.m., police were in the 4500 block of South Monaco Street questioning the owner of the vehicle as well as a second person, according to sources.
Since that time, police have indicated that there is a connection between the owner of the Jeep and the victim, but have said there is no connection between that vehicle owner and the suspect in the victim’s death.
