On Sunday, November 19, 2017 at midnight, a uniformed Aurora Police Officer had just arrived at E. Colfax Ave. and N. Moline St. to assist with what appeared to be a vehicle versus pedestrian crash.


After being on scene for only a couple of minutes, the officer heard a single gunshot that he believed was fired in his direction.  The officer was uncertain of exactly where the shot came from and subsequently additional police resources were requested to the area from all parts of the city.  An extensive search was conducted by officers on the ground in the area and Denver Police Department’s ‘Air One’ helicopter assisted with a search by air.  A suspect was not located during the search and still remains at large.


One of the tires on the Officer’s marked patrol vehicle sustained damage.  As a part of the on-going investigation, Detectives will determine if this damage was related to the shot that was fired at the Officer. Very fortunately, the Officer was uninjured during the course of this incident. 


The case will be further investigated by the Aurora Police Major Crimes/Homicide Unit.  The Aurora Police Department is asking anybody with information about this case to please contact Sgt. Matt Fyles at (303) 739-6041.  Tipsters with information can also remain anonymous by contacting Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at (720) 913-7867 and can be eligible for a reward of up to $2,000.
