At least 10 people were wounded in a mass shooting early Tuesday in Denver in an area

where basketball fans had been celebrating the Nuggets' first NBA title win, police said.

A suspect, one of the 10 wounded, has been taken into custody by the Denver Police Department.

Police believe multiple shots were fired in a dispute between several people roughly a mile from Ball Arena

where the Nuggets defeated the Miami Heat in Game 5 of the NBA Finals on Monday night

The shooting happened at around 12:30 a.m. local time -- about 3 ½ hours after the game

and three of the wounded were in critical condition, police said in a statement

The suspect, a man, was one of the seven people who suffered injuries believed to be non-life-threatening.

As far as what led up to this altercation that resulted in the shots being fired,

that's still under investigation at this time," police spokesperson Doug Schepman said.
