On March 16, 2018 at approximately 2:45 p.m., Aurora Police Officers responded from around the entire city to the Town Center at Aurora Mall located at 14200 E. Alameda Ave. on the report of shots fired from inside the mall.

As Officers quickly arrived on scene, it was discovered that this was not an active shooter situation but rather an isolated disturbance between three adult male parties.  Through the course of the investigation, it was learned that a physical fight took place between parties and at least one gunshot was fired as a result of the physical altercation.  All three parties fled from within the mall and were quickly apprehended outside of the mall.  Two of the three male parties were transported to area hospitals to be evaluated for minor injuries.

Certain parts of the mall were briefly secured or evacuated during this incident but a speedy resolution to the incident allowed the mall to stay open for business.  The Aurora Police Department would like to note that the strong working relationship between the police department and mall management was evident during yesterday’s incident.  Police Officers were able to work closely with mall staff and officers even viewed live security camera feeds at the mall to efficiently take parties into custody.

Two males have been arrested in connection with this incident and are identified as Keshaun Thomas-Dunn (07/29/1998) and Devonte Shead (02/22/1998).  Thomas-Dunn was arrested with Possession of a Weapon by a Previous Offender and Aggravated Assault.  Shead was arrested for Attempted Second Degree Murder.  Thomas-Dunn’s and Shead’s mugshots are listed below.  The third male, who was in the company of Thomas-Dunn and Shead, was arrested for unrelated warrants and he is currently not facing charges in relation to this incident.  This third male is not being identified since he is not facing charges stemming from this incident.

The case is now in the hands of the 18th Judicial District and therefore further public inquiries into the details of the case will be referred to their organization.  It should be noted that all arrests in this case are merely accusations and the arrested persons are presumed innocent until or unless proven guilty.
