Triple Shooting on North Potomac Circle 
(February 12, 2020) On February 10, 2020, Public Safety Communications Division received a 911 call at approximately 10:51 A.M. about a male shot in the area of 359 North Potomac Circle. Aurora Police Officers quickly arrived on scene and located an adult male who had been shot. Officers applied a tourniquet to this male that likely saved his life. This male was then transported to an area hospital in serious condition.

Officers gathered descriptions of additional individuals seen running from the scene and relayed this information over the radio. Responding officers observed two additional males matching that description near the intersection of East 2nd Place and North Potomac Street. These males were contacted, and both were armed with firearms when detained. While speaking to these individuals, one was found to be suffering from a gunshot wound. The other male was suffering from a different health issue but was not shot. These two adult males were both transported to the hospital in non-critical condition.

While checking the immediate area near 359 North Potomac Circle, officers located an additional male that had been shot inside of a black vehicle. This male was rushed to the hospital in extremely serious condition, where he currently remains. The only information we are releasing currently about the male’s identity is that he is 17 years old.

Two of the people involved have since been released from the hospital and both have been arrested and charged with aggravated robbery. Due to the ongoing investigation, and needing to complete additional interviews and photo lineups, their names and booking photos are unavailable.

A third adult male is still admitted into the hospital in serious condition, but with non-life-threatening injuries. Once discharged, this male will be arrested and charged with attempted murder. Additionally, because of the active investigation, his name and booking photo will not be available for release at this time.

The investigation into this incident is still ongoing. If you have any information or video of the crime, please contact Agent Randy Hansen with the Major Crimes Homicide Unit at 303-739-6710. Tipsters can also call Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720.913.STOP (7867). Tipsters can remain anonymous and are eligible for a reward of up to $2,000.

This case will be prosecuted by the 18th Judicial District Attorney's Office. Any further inquiries about this case will need to be directed to their office.
