AURORA, Colo. — Four people were wounded in an early-morning shooting Tuesday, the Aurora Police Department said.

The shooting happened about 1 a.m. in the 12500 block of East Kansas Place, near South Peoria Street and East Mississippi Avenue.

Four people, three adults and a 17-year-old, were self-transported to a hospital. One was reported to be in critical condition and the other three are in stable condition.

The relationship among the injured and the shooter is not known. The names of the victims were not released.

Police said people gathered in the area when someone started shooting.

A witness said three men and a woman were arguing. A man then pulled out a phone and “called for backup,” the witness said.

Three vehicles with a total of about 10 people showed up and there are arguing and yelling, the witness said.

That’s when someone pulled out a gun and started shooting. The witness said one person collapsed and people began running in several directions.

The witness went inside and called police as her husband jumped onto their daughter to shield her in case bullets came through the walls into the home.

On Wednesday, APD confirmed an arrest had been made, but did not provide further information.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 303-739-6067 or Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-7867.
