1 child dead, another critical and suspect arrested after 4 people shot near dentist's office in Col
One child has died and another remains in critical condition after four people were shot near a dentist’s office in Westminster, Colorado, north of Denver. The suspected shooter has been arrested, but his motive remains unknown.

When police arrived at the scene of the crime at 3:05 pm, they discovered four gunshot victims in the parking lot, all of whom were immediately rushed to a hospital.

In addition to an adult male who is expected to survive his injuries, an adult female and her two male children were also struck by gunfire. “The female and one of the children sustained life-threatening injuries and are in critical condition,” police said late on Friday, adding that "a juvenile male succumbed to his injuries.”

Once Westminster police cordoned off the scene of the crime, they began to question witnesses, before issuing a manhunt alert for a black Toyota Corolla sedan, which, authorities believe, "fled" the scene of the crime.

Two hours after the alleged shooting took place, Colorado State Patrol managed to locate the vehicle and have taken a "person of interest" into custody.

"We believe we have the person responsible for this incident in custody and there is not a danger to the public," police reported, adding that they are now trying to determine the circumstances surrounding the incident.
