Teenager identified in fatal attempted robbery in Aurora
AURORA, Colo. — The juvenile who was shot and killed by a mover during an attempted robbery on Friday night in Aurora was identified Tuesday.
Dewayne Lamonte Quenvell Brown, 15, died of two gunshot wounds and his death was classified as a homicide by the Arapahoe County Coroner’s Office.
The Aurora Police Department said three men were moving items into a unit in an apartment building in the 400 block of South Kalispell Way about 11 p.m. Friday when they were approached by three teenage males in the foyer who attempted to rob them at gunpoint.
“Two of the movers started to hand over their money,” Aurora Police Chief Nick Metz said. “The third mover who was fearing for his safety and the safety of his friends, pulled his weapon out.”
All three suspects were hit with gunfire. One was in serious condition and the second was in fair condition with nonlife-threatening injuries. Brown died en route to the hospital.
The other two suspects have not been identified and police said the three movers have cooperated in the investigation.
