AURORA, Colo. — Police are investigating after a man was shot outside an Aurora bar Christmas Eve.

Police received a call about a shooting at the Rack’em Billiards and Sports Bar on S. Havana Street around 10:45 p.m., said police spokesman Frank Fania.

Arriving officers found a man with a gunshot wound in the parking lot, Fania said. He was taken to a local hospital and later pronounced dead.

Police believe the shooting happened after a fight between two groups of people on the street, Fania said.

“The altercation carried over into the street and witnesses reported hearing several gunshots.  The victim then came walking back towards the parking where he collapsed,” Fania said.

Investigators are asking anyone who may have witnessed the shooting or has any information on this case to please call Aurora police at (303)739-6090.   You can also provide information on this case and remain anonymous by calling CRIME STOPPERS at 720-913-STOP (7867).

    Who goes to a bar on Christmas Eve? Gangstahs. Aurora’s north hood is creeping south….Mississippi was once the DMZ line. Dayton & Colfax ground zero Juarez-Compton.

    Black guys with dark hoodies and a black SUV…..that’s Aurora Colorado. I hear the city just loves all that Aurora city land south of 225 & Parker, it makes the crime stats low…..if it just included north of there it would make the city stats as expected and known: the joke the place is.

    To all reading im here in California, and the black guy thag was killed is my nephew. My god watch over YOUR children..

  • A friend of the victim

    Yes this happens to be a bar, but the young man who was murdered was there with a lady friend playing pool! Get your facts together before you judge others. This man has children who will never see their father again. He is not a violent man and didn’t deserve to be shot in the back by these ruthless hoodlums! Because he was a black male that makes him deserving of the actions taken out against him? Worse than the crime rate in Aurora is the useless people who do nothing to help their communities and yet make all the judgements in the world!
