Cincinnati couple shot at a Denver Enterprise Rental Car

Chaos in downtown Denver, Colorado, is sending shockwaves through a tight-knit community over a thousand miles away on Cincinnati’s westside. Witnesses say around one o’clock Friday afternoon, gunshots rang out at an Enterprise Rental Car. “Then when I looked out and saw the woman pointing at him, I was just kind of putting it all together in my head, like what the heck is going on?” witness Matthew Dodge said.Two bystanders, 54-year-old Pat Huhn of Cincinnati and his wife Shannon were hit. Police say they found the victims lying on the ground. “They arrived shortly after and found the two gunshot victims in the parking lot,” said Denver Police Department Division Chief of Investigation Joe Montoya. Pat Huhn died from his injuries. Shannon Huhn was rushed to the hospital for surgery. Shortly after the shooting police took the suspect, Derron Harris, into custody. “An eyewitness that witnessed the shooting was able to point him out to officers. Officers were able to get that suspect into custody,” Montoya said. Longtime neighbors and friends in the Huhns’ Westside neighborhood are devastated by the news. Pat Huhn was a 1985 graduate of Elder High School. Both Pat and Shannon were pharmacists. “You think, ‘How could something like this happen?’” said Kurt Ruffing. Ruffing is principal at Elder. He graduated a few years behind Pat in school, but got to know him when the next generation of the family started class there. “I got to know Pat and his wife Shannon and the two boys who went to school here, through their boys who were in the band,” Ruffing said. Ruffing said they will lean on their faith to get them through. “All we can do is offer prayers for the family, Ruffing said. “that they can get through this hard time with peace and comfort.”In a statement Tri-Health’s President and CEO Mark C. Clement said in part, “Pat was a highly respected and well-liked member of our pharmacy team at Group Health – Western Hills.”From what neighbors and friends have told us, Pat Huhn was well liked. Now, their focus is on praying for his wife and their two boys. Denver police say the Huhns did not know the shooter. Harris is charged with first-degree murder.
