Loud Commerce City house party ends in gunfire, neighbors want owner to disappear as a result


COMMERCE CITY, Colorado – A house party ended with gunfire on a dark street on the outskirts of Commerce City. Kristen Hoffman’s camera captured those terrifying moments when people started to scatter once the beatings were heard.

“I started screaming for my husband and lay down on the floor because I was so scared. I didn’t know where it was coming from or what was going on,” Hoffman said.

The Commerce City Police Department said the party ended around 1 a.m. Saturday at 9749 Eagle Creek Parkway when someone fired several shots with dozens of people in the area.

Neighbor Paul Nobling immediately had a thought when he heard the gunshots.

“I was thinking about the death toll,” Nobling said.

With several officers at the scene, Hoffman’s video shows a truck driving through the crime scene as officers motioned for the driver to stop. Commerce City police said they did not identify the driver, nor did they have a description of the shooter.

Dan and Chelsea Adams just bought a house in the neighborhood less than a year ago.

“We’ve already started looking at the houses. We’re like, do we even want to be here. If that happens again, we’re gone,” said Chelsea Adams.

During our interview with the couple, we saw the open door to the house where the shooting took place. A few minutes later, we went home to get answers, but no one answered.

We spoke to the person in charge of Eagle Creek HOA who says the owner is out of town and his 18 year old daughter was the house at the time.

“Every time they throw a party there are broken bottles all over the place,” said Dan Adams.

The next day, more of Hoffman’s video shows a person cleaning what neighbors say is glass as they appear to be dancing while sweeping.

“The first time I saw the girl was yesterday when she was out cleaning the glass and twerking with her friends acting like it’s a joke. It’s not a joke,” Nobling said.

While neighbors tell us they would like homeowners to be removed by the HOA, the HOA says state law prohibits them from taking this step.
