Shots were fired at the Pot Day party in Denver’s Civic Center today.
Three people were hurt.
The UPI reported:

Three people were shot in Denver’s Civic Center Saturday where thousands of people gathered for marijuana-inspired “420 Day” festivities, paramedics said.

The three victims were taken to a hospital. Denver police said one person was shot in the leg. The injuries sustained by the other two were not known.

The Denver Post reported the big crowd scattered when the shots were fired about 5 p.m.

Several thousand people had gathered in Denver to celebrate marijuana and Colorado’s decision to legalize recreational pot consumption.

Organizers said it was the largest gathering in the United States this year for “420 Day,” which has become an international rallying time for marijuana advocates, the Post said.

While public pot smoking remains illegal in Colorado, police said law enforcement would be light.

“We’re not going to be tackling 10,000 people and writing them all a citation,” police spokesman Matt Murray said.
