Aurora Police Investigate Homicide of Teenager, Suspect in Custody 
On March 18, 2019 at 11:38 a.m. Aurora Police Officers responded to the Sable Technological Center located at 562 Sable Boulevard on reported gunfire in the area. Upon officers arrival they located a victim lying on the ground in the parking lot suffering from an apparent gunshot wound. The victim, a juvenile male, was transported to an area hospital where tragically he succumbed to his wounds.

The Aurora Police Department (APD) Major Crimes Homicide Unit, Fugitive Apprehension and Surveillance Team, APD K-9 Unit, APD SWAT, and the Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Task Force were among those who worked tirelessly for nearly 31hours which led to the arrest of a juvenile male in this homicide. The arrest occurred on March 19th at approximately 7:00 p.m. in the 15000 block of East Evans Avenue without further incident.

Due to this suspect and victim both being juveniles in this active investigation, no further details will be released by APD at this time. All further media inquires from this date forward should be directed to the 18th Judicial District Attorney's Office, where this case will be prosecuted.
