Children Shot Update

Denver police is holding a suspect for questioning in connection of a drive by shooting that injured two girls.

Detective John White said yesterday that 19 year old Marquise Davis was arrested under suspicion of attempted murder.

White did not know when or where he was arrested.

Officers say 6 year old Yazmine Sandate and 14 year old Karina Padilla were playing on a back porch on Wednesday in north Denver.

That's when two men in a gray sedan drove through an alley, firing multiple shots.

Detective Virginia Quinones says Yazmine was shot in the leg, and Karina was shot in the abdomen.

Quinones says it's unknown who the intended targets were or the possible motive for the shooting.

White says officers found a stolen gray 2004 Dodge Stratus believed to be used by the suspects several hours after the shooting.
