1 killed, 1 injured in shooting in Aurora
AURORA, Colo. — Aurora Police were investigating a double shooting in east Aurora Friday morning.
Aurora Police responded to reports of a shooting at 3991 South Espana Way around 7:15 a.m. and found a man suffering from an apparent gunshot wound at the scene. That victim was transported to a hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.
Shortly after, another male victim approached police officers, wounded in his arm. He was transported to a hospital and appears to have nonlife-threatening injuries, according to Aurora Police.
Police were able to determine that the shootings took place at 19471 E. Navarro Place, a short distance away from the initially reported location.
As a precaution police placed Sunrise Elementary School and Horizon Middle School on secured perimeter until they were confident there was no public safety concern for the surrounding neighborhood.
Sgt. Amsler, Aurora Police spokesperson, said investigators don’t know if the men shot each other but they are not looking for anyone else involved in the shooting.
There is no danger to the public, Aurora Police say.
The name of the deceased victim will be released by the Arapahoe County Coroner’s Office once they have positively identified him and his next of kin have been notified.
The investigation is ongoing as investigators work to determine what exactly transpired.
Police are asking anyone with information on this case to call Agent Mike Prince with the Major Crimes/Homicide Unit at 303-739-6127.
