DENVER (AP) -- Authorities say one of Denver's leading anti-gang violence activists has been arrested in connection with a shooting.

Police say 37-year-old Terrance Roberts is being held on suspicion of first-degree assault and attempted murder for a shooting in Denver's Park Hill neighborhood.

The shooting was reported at about 6:15 p.m. Friday outside a community center that houses the office of Roberts' anti-violence organization, the Prodigal Son Initiative. It happened at the same time the group had scheduled to hold a unity rally.

The victim was shot multiple times, but police haven't released the man's name or condition.

The Denver Post reports ( Roberts spent most of his teenage years in the Bloods street gang, but he decided to turn his life around after he was shot in the back in 1993.
