The shooting happened at the same complex of another shooting investigation on East Adriatic Place. Five people, including three teenagers, were shot at an apartment party one week ago. A 16-year-old boy was arrested in that shooting.

If anyone has information about this case, they are asked to call Agent Hubert at 303-739-6090. Tipsters can remain anonymous and be eligible for a reward of up to $2,000 by calling Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP (7867).

  1. Harry Callahan SFPD says:

    Like the rest of Aurora it is imploding. Crime ridden with poor police administration. They are more concerned about getting a black-out drunk cop not arrested or 40,000 dollars looted by another cop off the books than getting a gang unit to hit gangs or trawling intruders looting apartments.
