Two children under 10 years old and a woman were killed, and a third child was wounded in an apparent shooting at a house in the northeast part of the Denver, police said Wednesday.

That child is in critical condition at Denver Health Medical Centre.

The shooting appears to have been isolated and there's no indication a shooter is on the loose, police Major Crimes Cmdr. Ron Saunier.

"Is there a mass killer or someone running around? At this time we don't believe so," he said.

The neighbourhood is in an industrial area, surrounded by warehouses and a trucking terminal, near the National Western Stock Show complex.

Neighbour Debbie Martinez said the house was recently sold.
