AURORA, Colo. (CBS4)- Police in Aurora are asking for help in finding the suspect who shot a pastor on July 4.
Police were called out to the shooting at about 9:45 p.m. Wednesday in the 1500 block of Nome Street in Aurora. When they arrived they found a 51-year-old man who had been shot. He was rushed to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The victim was pulled out of his car and a fight began between him and the suspects. One of the suspects shot at the victim, striking him in the leg. The suspects ran away on foot and were last seen in the area of East 19th Avenue and Peoria Street.
