AURORA, Colo. — Police say a Courtyards at Buckley resident shot and wounded a man who intruded into their apartment early Saturday morning.

Police said in a release Saturday afternoon that they “do not believe there is a threat to the general public from this incident.”

Officers responded to 2155 South Rifle Way about 2:34 a.m. and found the man suffering from multiple gunshot wounds, according to an Aurora Police Department press release. Responders transported the man to an area hospital, where on Saturday afternoon he remained in critical but stable condition, police said.

Police said intruders entered a man’s apartment. After a struggle, the man shot and wounded one of the intruders, according to a police spokesperson.

Investigators are working to determine whether there’s a connection between the man and the intruders.

The shooting happened at the same complex where a teenager is accused of wounding five people in a shooting last weekend.

Police are asking if anyone has information about this case to please contact investigators at (303) 739-6090.

Tipsters can remain anonymous and be eligible for a reward of up to $2,000 by calling Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP (7867).
