Information Previously Released on April 14, 2018

In the early hours of April 14, 2018 at approximately 4:30 A.M., Aurora Police Officers responded to 940 S. Iola St. on the report of an unknown problem. A report to dispatch indicated that a female was in distress at this approximate location.

As Officers arrived, they located 2 adult females associated with a vehicle that was near the above address. One of the females was suffering from an apparent gunshot wound and both females were subsequently transported to area hospitals. The female who was suffering from a gunshot wound sadly succumbed to her injuries and was pronounced deceased at the hospital. The other female was treated for minor injuries and is expected to survive. It is unknown what circumstances lead up to the shooting incident but answering that question will be a focus for investigators as the investigation progresses. There is currently not a suspect in custody in connection with this incident

Detectives do not have any additional information that is available for public release at this time because they wish to protect the active investigation in its early stages. The identity of the victim will be released by the Arapahoe County Coroner’s Office at a later date pending the notification of next of kin.

The Aurora Police Major Crimes/Homicide unit is handling the investigation into this matter. We are asking anybody with information about this incident to please call Detective Fredericksen at (303) 739-6106.
