Aurora and Denver police, including a SWAT team, surrounded the home near North Chambers Road and East 53rd Avenue in Denver.

Police said an armed man, later identified as Wilson-Burnett, barricaded himself inside a home in the neighborhood. One woman and two children were evacuated from the home.

The situation began at approximately 11 p.m. in Aurora near Mississippi Avenue and Idalia Street after two suspects shot into a car carrying two people. No one was injured. Police said one of the victims knew one of the suspects and that the shooting may have been domestic violence.

Police are still searching for a suspect who is not barricaded in the home. They describe him as a black male, 5 foot 8 with slender build and braided hair wearing a white and grey shirt.

Police issued a reserve notification to nearby residents, but no one was evacuated other than the people in the home.
