(January 8, 2020) On Wednesday January 8, 2020, at approximately 8:24 a.m. Aurora Police Officers were dispatched to the area of East Tennessee Place and South Truckee Street on a report of suspicious parties in the area.


The 911 caller described the suspicious parties as two juvenile females and one juvenile male, all approximately 15 years of age, who were associated with a red Honda CRV.  The caller also advised the parties were looking into homes, and believed they may be attempting to commit a burglary.  Officers learned the Honda CRV was stolen out of Colorado Springs as they were arriving on scene.


Upon officers arrival they confronted a juvenile male in the stolen vehicle.  The officer made the decision to discharge his weapon which did not strike the juvenile male.  The juvenile male was transported to a local hospital for minor injuries.  A handgun was recovered from the vehicle.


All responding officers were equipped with body-worn cameras and will be reviewed as part of this investigation.  The involved officer has worked for the Aurora Police Department for 15 years, and has not been involved in any prior officer-involved shootings at the Aurora Police Department.  The officer will be placed on administrative leave per Aurora Police Department policy.


This incident is being investigated by members of the Aurora Police Department, Denver Police Department and the 18th Judicial District Attorneys Office in accordance with Senate Bill 15-219.


Once this investigation is complete it will be presented to the 18th Judicial District Attorneys Office for criminal culpability review. We are requesting all members of the public who were a witness to the events leading up to and after the officer-involved shooting to contact Agent Sutherland at 303.739.6406.
