AURORA, Colo. (CBS4)– Police in Aurora believe a deadly shooting is an isolated incident and that the public isn’t in danger.
The shooting happened about 3:30 p.m. Thursday in the middle of the street at Yampa and Louisiana.
Yolanda Johnson saw the numerous police vehicles and yellow crime scene tape while out on a walk.
“My grandkids come from school and they walk this way everyday,” she said.
The intersection where the shooting victim was found is just feet away from a busy Highlands Hollows Park.
“This time of day all the kids are getting out of school, the teenagers are already out of school and then the middle age kids, the younger kids, they want to go to the park and play. Play basketball and hangout,” Johnson said.
The victim was rushed to the hospital and died.
Brittney Mccombs was planning to spend the day at the park with her two young children.
“It’s scary, if I would’ve picked them up sooner from school we would’ve been here and you know seeing that and them hearing that,” she said.
Investigators have not released what led up to the shooting. The victim has not been identified.
