Authorities say four people died and one other is seriously injured following a series of unrelated shootings and one stabbing that happened in Denver beginning Thursday evening and continued into the early hours Friday. 

Members of the Denver Police Department were first dispatched to the 3600 block of Morrison after reports of a shooting with multiple victims at 5:20 p.m. Thursday, said Jay Casillas, a public information officer for the department. 

Officers located three victims on-scene who suffered serious injures as a result of the shooting and were transported to a nearby hospital.

Two of the victims later died as a result of their injuries, and information about them will be released at a later date, said Casillas.

Investigators through the initial investigation gathered enough information to identify and locate 28-year-old Kenneth R. Berry who is being held on suspicion of two counts of first-degree murder and attempted murder at the downtown detention center, Casillas said. 

Several hours after the initial call, officers were dispatched to a shooting near the intersection of East Colfax Avenue and Verbena Street just after 11 a.m, Casillas said.

Two victims were located on-scene and transported to a nearby hospital. Their current conditions were unknown.

No arrests had been made as of 10:30 a.m., additionally no information about a suspect has been released. 

Two hours later, officers were again dispatched to a reporting of a shooting in the 2300 block of Curtis Street in the Curtis Park neighborhood around 1 a.m., Casillas said.

Police located one man who suffered serious injuries from a gunshot wound and was transferred to a nearby hospital. He was pronounced dead several hours later.

A second man who was shot during the same incident was located by police and is also hospitalized. Their status is unknown.

No arrests have been made and information about a suspect has not been released as of 10:30 a.m.

Lastly, officers responded to a domestic disturbance call in the 3200 block of Steele Street at 3:10 a.m.

Authorities arrived and located a victim on-scene who had suffered a serious stab wound. They were transported to a nearby hospital where they were pronounced dead, Casillas said. 

Daryl Webster, 51, was arrested on-scene and is currently being held at the downtown detention center. 

Police are urging anyone with information regarding any of the incidents to contact the Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-7867.
