(May 26) On Wednesday, May 26, 2021, at approximately 09:00 a.m., District 2 Patrol Officers responded to a shooting at 1305 South Elkhart Way.

Officers located an adult male who had been shot inside of an apartment. This male suffered fatal injuries and was pronounced deceased on the scene. Suspect information was gathered by witness statements and a positive identification of the shooter was obtained. The suspect, Demajhea Tuggle (02/02/2003), was quickly located and arrested by our Fugitive Apprehension and Surveillance Team. He was booked into the Aurora Jail on 1st Degree Murder charges. A booking photo is available at the bottom of this press release.

This case continues to be investigated by our Major Crimes Homicide Unit. The identity of the deceased will be released by the Arapahoe County Coroner's Office after a positive identification has been made, and his next-of-kin has been notified.

Anyone that has information about this case is asked to call Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720.913.7867. By using Crime Stoppers, tipsters can remain anonymous and be eligible for a REWARD of up to $2,000.

Make & Learn

Welcome to Make & Learn! In this program, our librarians will be sharing easy-to-make games and activities that support cognitive development and practicing early literacy skills. 

In this video, Lisa shares two ways to make your own road for a toy car - one on the floor and one that is more puzzle-like. These activities encourage imagination and make believe play, which support cognitive development and abstract thinking.

The Aurora Police Department will be conducting Stationary Roadside Sobriety Checkpoint on Saturday, May 22, 2021 from 9:00 p.m. to 3:00 a.m. 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, which kicks off Memorial Day weekend, continuing through Labor Day weekend. This checkpoint will be located on South Chambers Road.

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 (CDOT).
