Man found dead in van in King Soopers parking lot does not appear to be victim of crime, police say

Denver police do not believe there was anything criminal in nature regarding the death of a person in a King Soopers parking lot in southeast Denver on Friday night.

“There is no criminal nexus to this,” Sgt. John White, a Denver police spokesman, said. “We are not looking for any suspects.”

Police responded to reports of shots fired around 7:30 p.m. at the intersection of East Hampden Avenue and South Monaco Parkway. When officers arrived, they found a person dead inside a van in a King Soopers parking lot.

Denver police’s initial tweet about a “disturbance” stemmed from the report of gunfire, White said.

Monaco Parkway was closed in both directions for a short time Friday night as police investigated the incident.
