DENVER (AP) -- Authorities are investigating after a Buckley Air Force Base airman was shot to death and another was injured in a popular area of downtown Denver as nearby bars were closing for the night.

Police spokesman Sonny Jackson said in a news release that officers were called to the area of 15th and Market streets just after 2 a.m. Saturday and found a man with a gunshot wound. The victim, whose name has not been released, was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Jackson says the man was shot during a "disturbance" involving a large group of people. He did not release any information about a suspect.

A news release from Buckley Air Force Base east of Denver confirmed the death and injury, but did not release any names.
