One person died at the scene and four others were taken to the hospital, police said.

Two patients were in serious condition Tuesday, Denver Health tweeted. The other two were discharged.

The suspects and victims are all men, police said.

Eyewitnesses described multiple shots being fired.

Willie Salone told CNN affiliate CBS4 that he works close to the crime scene.

"I saw some guy walk up to another guy, I don't know what went on, but after a while he started shooting. He shoots the guy he was talking to in the head. After that, he started shooting some more," he said.

Andrew Guzman told the TV station that his car had been parked nearby.

"My back windshield was shot out, and one of the bullets ended up in my back headrest," he said.

Police said the circumstances surrounding the shooting remain under investigation and they are speaking to witnesses.

Correction: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated a hospital spokesman's comment on the shooting. The spokesman said five people had been shot.
