Shots were fired in the parking lot of the high school located at 1250 South Chambers Road in Aurora just after noon Friday. More than a dozen gunshots were heard in the parking lot at the time of the shooting.
Friday’s shooting happened about three miles from a shooting at Nome Park in Aurora on Monday afternoon that left 6 Aurora Central High School students injured.
Wilson said it was too early to discuss whether the shooting at Hinkley High School is related to Monday’s shooting at Nome Park.
She urged parents to check their children’s phones and know who they are hanging out with. Wilson also urged witnesses to come forward and turn in any photos or video that they may have to help with the investigation.
