Double homicide at Denver homeless shelter under investigation

No arrests have been made in a double homicide at a Denver homeless shelter and Denver police are asking for the public to help in the investigation.

Sandra Cervantes, 43, and Dustin Nunn, 38, were killed Saturday night at the former DoubleTree hotel, 4040 N. Quebec St., which the city has leased since November for use as a transitional housing shelter for up to 300 people. Cervantes died due to a single gunshot, and Nunn died after being shot multiple times, according to Denver Office of the Medical Examiner officials who released the identities on Wednesday.

“The case is still under investigation. No arrests have been made. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers (720-913-7867),” Denver Police officials said in an emailed response. Police announced the killing at 9:30 a.m. Sunday on X.

Denver officials said they will implement a plan to improve safety at city shelters.

The former hotel is located in Denver’s Central Park neighborhood. It is owned by Rocky Mountain Communities, a nonprofit that provides apartments around the state for low-income residents.
