denver 420 shooting

Yet again, what was supposed to be a happy, peaceful occasion has been marred by unnecessary and thoughtless violence.

During "4/20" pot rally in Denver's Civic Center Park yesterday, where over ten thousand stoners had gathered to celebrate the first year that marijuana is legalized for recreational use in the state of Colorado, multiple gunshots were fired, leaving three people and a dog injured, and countless others fleeing in terror.

According to local reporter Russell Haythorn, the crowd heard "four to five shots fired" around 5pm, while Lil' Flip was performing, and a man and woman between 20-30, were shot in the leg, while a juvenile and dog belonging to one of the victims were both grazed.

According to 28-year-old attendee Travis Craig, who rushed to help a victim by using his belt to apply a tourniquet to his leg:

"I saw him fall, grabbing his leg. He was just screaming that he was in pain, and wanted to know where his girlfriend was. She was OK. And then the cops showed up real quick, like, less than a minute. They put him on ambulance and left."

Police are now on the look-out for two suspects, described as a light-complexioned African American man, projected to be 6 feet tall and 180 pounds, who was wearing a gray hoodie, black pants and a blue Carolina baseball hat. The second was an African American man in a checkered black and white shirt.

Police spokesman Sonny Jackson says:

“Everybody in this world has a camera nowadays, so if anybody has any pictures that might assist us, we’d like those as well."

We just do not understand what is going on in this country anymore.

For all of those people injured or affected in any way by this horrific event, you are in our thoughts and prayers.

We just hope authorities are able to quickly apprehend the individuals responsible, and they are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

    This kinda shit doesn't happen in Canada. Maybe the US should take a page from Canada.

    Celebrating Pot? This country is a complete disaster. Seriously… anyone who gives it a moments thought will agree…celebrating a drug? Pathetic.

    THIS is why legalizing drugs is moronic. People are so dumb it isn't even funny. This is what our country is becoming. A land of lazy stoners who live mediocre lives and enjoy it. So sad.

    Trailer trash and hood rats. You can dress them up but you can't take them out.
