Information previously released on August 31, 2018

On August 31, 2018, at approximately 5:17 p.m., officers with the Aurora Police Department responded to a reported physical dispute in the 1900 block of Peoria Street.

While conducting an investigation, shots were heard coming from the 1900 block of the Peoria Street/Paris Street alley. Officers responded to the area where shots were coming from and located multiple people lying on the ground. One of the individuals was a juvenile and all were suffering from apparent gunshot wounds.

An officer then confronted an armed suspect and gunfire was exchanged between the suspect and the officer, which resulted in the officer and suspect being shot.

The officer, suspect, and others were all transported to local hospitals for treatment. The officer is in good condition and was wearing a bullet resistant vest which saved the officer from sustaining a life threatening injury.

The investigation into this incident is being handled by the Aurora Police Department's Major Crimes Unit in conjunction with the Denver Police Department. This is due to the passage of Senate Bill 15-219 which requires law enforcement agencies to team up with neighboring agencies to investigate officer-involved shootings. We are also working with the 17th Judicial District Attorney’s Office as we conduct a comprehensive and transparent investigation.

The involved officer has been placed on administrative assignment with pay per Aurora Police Department policy.

We are requesting all members of the public who were a witness to this incident to contact Detective Matthew Ingui at 303.739.6067

On September 7, 2018, at approximately 8:08 p.m., Aurora Officers responded to a single vehicle rollover accident at I-70 and North Airport Road. Two occupants were transported to a local area hospital where the driver was later pronounced deceased.

The investigation has revealed that a black SUV was westbound on Interstate I-70 and was attempting to exit onto southbound Airport Boulevard. The SUV failed to navigate a turn and left the roadway, where it rolled at least one time.

This accident is being investigated by the Aurora Police Department Traffic Section. It appears that speed and alcohol are both factors in this crash. The names of the involved individuals are not being released at this time.

On September 17th, 2018, around 3:30 P.M., the Aurora Police Department was notified of a missing juvenile. Officers arrived in the 1900 block of North Elmira Street and began to gather information about a 10-year-old, Daniela Ruano-Morales, who had run away. Daniela is a Hispanic female, 4'10" tall, 65 lbs., and has brown hair and brown eyes. Daniela was last seen by her mother around 10:00 A.M. that morning.

Due to the age of Daniela, and the duration in which she had been missing, the Aurora Police Department reached out to the Colorado Bureau of Investigations (CBI). After consultation, they decided to issue an Endangered Missing Alert. Because there was no information that Daniela had been abducted, this incident did not meet the requirements to issue an Amber Alert.

Aurora Police Officers worked throughout the night knocking on doors and checking the area for Daniela but were not able to locate her.

We reached out to our neighboring agencies and received help from the following agencies: K-9 Jessie and Deputy K. Foster from the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, K-9 Dax and Ranger J. Heibert from Boulder County Parks and Open Space, the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue team, the FBI Denver Field Office, Aurora Fire Rescue and the Denver Police Department. Many others came to assist and were instrumental in our efforts.

Multiple Federal Agents, Officers, and Detectives began to canvas the area where Daniela was last known to be, where they conducted interviews, and gathered information.

Around 12:10 P.M., Officers were notified that Daniela had been found in the Hoffman Heights Neighborhood near East 6th Avenue and North Peoria Street. Daniela was found in the area by a distant relative. Officers responded and were able to locate Daniela safe.

This is still an active and open investigation. Officers are still trying to determine how Daniela got to the Hoffman Heights area. We do not believe that there is any danger to the community at this time.

Finally, we thank the thousands of members of our public who provided tips and information on the whereabouts of Daniela. Our partnership with our community is instrumental in investigating cases such as these.

NATURE: Roadside Sobriety Checkpoint- Saturday, September 29th, 2018

Aurora, Colorado- The Aurora Police Department will be conducting a Stationary Roadside Sobriety Checkpoint on Saturday, September 29th, 2018. This is part of our continuing commitment to the statewide effort to combat drunk drivers and reduce alcohol related traffic accidents and fatalities. This checkpoint is part of the DUI Checkpoint Colorado program. This checkpoint will be located on Peoria St.
Motorists passing through the checkpoint will be contacted briefly by an officer who will be looking for signs of intoxication and/or impairment in the driver. The checkpoint should cause only minor inconvenience to traffic along the targeted roadway, and highly visible signage will be posted leading into the checkpoint screening area. Drivers entering a checkpoint are asked to pay close attention to the officers directing traffic through the area. Motorists should also roll down their drivers’ side window as they approach the screening area. This allows for better communication between the motorist and the officer, quicker screening and a shorter delay overall.
The checkpoint is funded by an N.H.T.S.A. (National Highway Transportation Safety Administration) grant in partnership with the “Heat is On” campaign and administered by the Colorado Department of Transportation.


Please contact Traffic Section Commander, Lt. Jad Lanigan, with any questions.

Information previously released on September 5, 2018

On September 5, 2018, at approximately 5:15 p.m., officers with the Aurora Police Department Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) team were in the 2200 block of North Fairplay Street in an attempt to make contact with a wanted suspect.

The SWAT team was assisting District Detectives in locating an adult male suspect who was wanted for domestic violence related criminal charges.

SWAT officers arrived in the area and contact was made with the wanted male suspect, who was armed. One officer discharged their firearm, striking the suspect. First aid was immediately rendered to the suspect by a SWAT Medic, and he was transported to a local hospital where he is currently receiving treatment.

No officers were injured during this incident. The involved officer will be placed on administrative assignment with pay, per Aurora Police Department policy.

This incident is being investigated by the Aurora Police Department Major Crimes Unit in conjunction with the Denver Police Major Crimes Unit. We are also working with the 17th Judicial District Attorney’s Office as we conduct a thorough investigation. The investigation into this incident is in its early stages and much work needs to be done to determine what circumstances led up to this officer-involved shooting. Officers involved in this incident were equipped with body worn cameras that were activated.

We are requesting anyone who was a witness to this incident to contact Detective Nick Huber at 303.739.6090
