AURORA, Colo. (CBS4) – Police in Aurora arrested a teenager in connection with last week’s shooting at Nome Park that left 6 Aurora Central Park High School students injured. Police have arrested a 15-year-old male, charged with attempted first-degree murder.
The second vehicle wanted in connection with the shooting, a Chrysler 300, has been located and seized. The 15-year-old has been identified as the driver of the Chrysler 300. Because of his age, the suspect’s identity will not be released.
Last week, police had seized a black Tahoe believed to be involved in the shooting.
Detectives continue searching for other shooters that were in Nome Park as well as additional suspect vehicles. At the time, police said that they were looking for multiple shooters and that several different guns were used in the shooting.
Police have determined that at least two other individuals at Nome Park were “shooting back” at the Chevrolet Tahoe and the Chrysler 300. Detectives are working to identify those people as well as others involved.
