A "medical marijuana" sale gone awry early this morning led to the fatal shooting of a man in Denver.
The incident happened at about 12:25 a.m. at a home on the 2600 block of Leyden St., said Sonny Jackson, a Denver Police Department spokesman.
When officers arrived at the scene they found an unidentified man who was shot in the head, Jackson said. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
A short time later another man walked into the Denver Health Medical Center to be treated for a gun shot wound.
Investigators believe the shooting victims are linked and that the two men were "conducting a medical marijuana transaction at the residence when an altercation occurred," Jackson said.
Police are investigating the incident as a homicide and the man who wound up at the hospital is being held as a suspect in the fatal shooting.
