(January 6, 2020) On Monday January 6, 2020, Denver police officers were conducting a stolen vehicle investigation in the City of Denver which led them into the City of Aurora. 

 

At approximately 6:05 p.m. Denver police officers requested emergency assistance from the Aurora Police Department while in the 13700 block of East Iliff Avenue after an adult male exited the stolen vehicle and fled on foot.  

During the ensuing

The identity of the male will be released by the Denver County Coroner’s Office pending positive identification, and notification of his next-of-kin. 

 

This officer-involved shooting caused the southbound off-ramp from I-225 onto East Iliff Avenue to be closed for several hours while officers investigated this incident.
