AURORA, Colo. (CBS4) – Deputies were at three scenes in Aurora on Thursday trying to determine just what happened after a driver fired shots in the middle of morning rush hour.
Deputies say it appears to be a case of road rage that may have stretched out across three different scenes. One shooting took place along Parker Road at Temple Drive, another a short distance away at Parker and East Saratoga Place, and a third at Orchard and Buckley roads.READ MORE: Police Activity Closes Several Lanes On I-25 Near Arapahoe Road
Nobody was seriously injured. A silver SUV at the Orchard Road scene received at least three shots with a female passenger suffering minor injuries but not requiring a trip to the hospital.
Arapahoe County sheriff’s deputies examined the SUV all morning long trying to recover evidence and determine if any more shots were fired.
Sheriff’s spokeswoman Julie Brooks described the shooter as a white male in his 30s. She said he stuck a gun through the small back window of a red pickup.
“We had reports that he was shooting out the back window of his vehicle. We had one victim … we don’t think she was the intended target. She did suffer minor injuries,” Brooks said. “The suspect then proceeded to go west on Orchard Road from there.”
The suspect then turned onto Parker Road going north in the southbound lanes. He managed to make it to Bellevue Avenue where he crash into a small Chevy sedan.

“I’ll I heard was a big ‘boom,’ like a wreck,” a witness said.
He continued on and hopped a curb and drove about 40 feet across some grass before hitting a wall. According to witnesses, he then got out of the pickup and began to pound on other vehicles driving on Parker with his fists.
“There were some witness reports that he might have been hitting vehicles with his hands after he got out of the accident, his own accident,” Brooks said.
“I saw a man running along the road, kind of in and out of the bushes,” another witness said.
A citizen then started to chase the suspect on foot.
“The second man was chasing him, and they did stop at one point and they were about four to five yards apart from each other,” the witness said.
The second man gave up on the chase. Deputies caught up with the man and took him into custody.MORE NEWS: Young Runner Evades Suspected Abductor In Jefferson County
