Denver police investigate shootings that killed 1, injured another about a block away


DENVER — Authorities have released the name of a woman who was shot to death in east Denver.

The Denver coroner's office identified the woman Wednesday as 21-year-old Rachel Aboytes and said she died of multiple gunshot wounds.

Police say Aboytes was killed and another person was injured in two shootings in the same neighborhood Tuesday night. The second victim was found about a block away from where Aboytes was shot, but police say that person didn't appear to have life-threatening injuries.
