AURORA, Colo. (KDVR) — A suspect is in custody following a string of shootings across Aurora that ended in an officer-involved shooting.
According to the Aurora Police Department, officers were called to the 7-Eleven at 599 South Airport Blvd. on reports of shots fired in the store.
The clerk at the 7-Eleven told officers that a man came into the store at 11:49 p.m. Monday armed with a handgun and fired at least one round.
The suspect was identified as 38-year-old Eugene Demetrius Robertson.
APD said that Robertson left the store and got into a confrontation with another customer who was in the parking lot of the 7-Eleven. More rounds were fired, but fortunately, no one was injured.
Robertson then left the scene in a vehicle.
When officers arrived at the 7-Eleven they gathered evidence and a description of the car that Robertson was driving.
