Three Shot at Denver Smokeout

Three people were wounded when gunfire erupted at a Denver marijuana rally Saturday afternoon, authorities said.

The incident occurred about 5 p.m. at  Civic Center Park during a celebration of the so-called 4/20 holiday, the first anniversary of Colorado's  legalization of marijuana for recreational use.

A man was shot  in the ankle and the leg, and a woman was shot in the ankle, Denver Police Department spokeswoman Raquel Lopez said.

Both were hospitalized in serious condition, but their injuries were not considered life-threatening. 

A third victim emerged two hours later, when a juvenile who was grazed by a bullet checked himself into a local hospital, Lopez said.
