Shots fired in apartment building near I-25; suspect at large

Bullets went through apartment, hit water line


Gunfire went through an apartment and hit a water line in the early morning hours Jan. 7 at a complex near East Dry Creek Road and Interstate 25, according to the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies are seeking two males on suspicion of firing the shots around 3 a.m. at 10001 E. Dry Creek Road, where The Rail at Inverness upscale apartments sit. No injuries were reported, according to the sheriff's office.

South Metro Fire Rescue shut off water to a building at the complex, and authorities evacuated the apartment that was hit, along with nearby units, amid flooding, said Deborah Sherman, sheriff's office spokeswoman.

Bullets were fired from inside the building, not in a drive-by manner, Sherman said. A witness told authorities the two males wore dark clothing, but a description beyond that wasn't available, Sherman said.

Deputies don't believe the suspects present a threat to the community, Sherman said. It's unclear if they're residents of the apartment complex.

There haven't been incidents that are similar or related to the shooting recently in the area, which sits just outside central Centennial in unincorporated Arapahoe County. It's part of Inverness Park, a business corridor that includes hotels, retail and restaurants.

Deputies are investigating and seeking the public's help. Those with information about the incident can call 720-913-7867 and are eligible for up to a $2,000 reward through Metro Denver Crime Stoppers, Sherman said.
