On Friday, March 16, 2018 at approximately 2:09 p.m. Aurora Police Officers responded to a shooting in the area of East Mississippi Avenue and South Peoria Street.

Upon arrival, officers located an adult female suffering from a gunshot wound in the parking lot of the Village East Grocery Store located at 1161 S Peoria St.

It is believed that the female victim is the owner of the grocery store and that she sustained her injuries during a robbery of the business. The female was transported to a local hospital where she currently remains in serious but stable condition.

During the investigation, officers determined that a Good Samaritan confronted the robbery suspect outside of the grocery store and the Good Samaritan shot the suspect. The suspect then fled the area.

A short time later, officers made contact with an adult male who was suffering from a gunshot wound in the area of South Joliet Street and East Garden Drive. Officers believe that the male was the robbery and shooting suspect who had fled from the area of the grocery store. The male was placed in custody and transported to a local hospital for treatment.

This robbery and shooting is still being investigated. We are asking if anyone has information about this incident to contact Sergeant Thomas Graham at 303-739-1809
