BREAKING: 2 Shot, Officer Run Over By Firetruck At Denver Nuggets’ Victory Parade

Denver, CO – Two people were shot, and a police officer was run over by a firetruck, at the end of the celebratory parade for the Nuggets in downtown Denver on Thursday.

The shootings occurred on June 15 near Curtis Street and 17th Street just as the parade was finishing up, KDVR reported.

Both victims were transported to nearby hospitals.

Reports said that one of the victims had been shot in the leg but officials have not yet released any information about the victims, the New York Daily News reported.

Moments later, in an unrelated incident at another spot on the parade route, a Denver police officer was struck by a Denver fire truck.

“A DPD officer was struck by a fire truck near the end of the parade route at W. 13th Ave/Cherokee St,” the Denver Police Department (DPD) tweeted. “The officer was transported to the hospital with serious injuries and the crash is under investigation.”

The injured hero was in “serious but stable” condition after receiving treatment, according to a police update.

It’s not the first time that gunfire interrupted the Nuggets’ celebration.

Ten people were shot in the street during the chaos after the Nuggets beat the Miami Heat in the National Basketball Association’s (NBA) championship game on Monday night.
