Information previously released

(November 11) A 12-year-old boy has died and a 14-year-old remains in serious condition after a shooting on Zion Street. One person of interest has been detained.

On November 11, 2022, about 2:58 p.m., Aurora Police Officers responded to a shooting in the 900 block of North Zion Street. Officers found two young boys, a 12-year-old and a 14-year-old, both of whom are related to each other, suffering from gunshot wounds. They were both immediately transported to the hospital. The 12-year-old was tragically pronounced deceased a short time later and the 14-year-old remains hospitalized with serious injuries.

Investigators from the department's Major Crimes Homicide Unit (MCHU) responded to the scene and worked with officers to locate evidence and interview witnesses. Initial details obtained by responding officers indicated that shots were fired from the inside of an Acura sedan at the two boys walking up the street. That vehicle then immediately left the scene but has since been located. Using this information, as well as gathering other details by responding officers, Aurora Police Officers were able to quickly identify and detain a person of interest, who is known to the victims. This person, a young adult, will not be identified unless they are officially charged.

The Arapahoe County Coroner's Office will release the identity of the deceased victim once he is positively identified and next of kin has been notified.

If you have any information about this shooting, and did not speak to detectives on scene, you are asked to contact Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720.913.STOP (7867). Tipsters could be eligible for a reward of up to $2,000 and still may remain anonymous.
