A paintball gun explosion in an upscale Denver suburb on Friday killed a woman and injured at least five others before being stopped by police.
The blast happened at a home in the affluent community of Greenwood Village, according to the Colorado Springs Gazette, which reported that the woman, who has not been identified, was a paintball shooter who was “dressed in a black sweatshirt and a dark hoodie” at the time.
Police were called to the scene just after 11 p.m. local time, when the victim told officers that she was shot in the face and suffered a head injury, according the Gazette.
She was transported to a local hospital, where she died.
The explosion sent a cloud of smoke and dust billowing through the neighborhood, and at least one person was taken to a hospital for treatment, according Denver police.
Police did not immediately release a motive for the shooting.
No other injuries were reported.
A spokesperson for the Colorado Attorney General’s Office said in a statement that the investigation is ongoing.
“The Colorado Attorney Generals office will be working closely with the FBI to investigate this incident,” it said.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families.”
