(May 26) On Wednesday, May 26, 2021, at approximately 09:00 a.m., District 2 Patrol Officers responded to a shooting at 1305 South Elkhart Way.

Officers located an adult male who had been shot inside of an apartment. This male suffered fatal injuries and was pronounced deceased on the scene. Suspect information was gathered by witness statements and a positive identification of the shooter was obtained. The suspect, Demajhea Tuggle (02/02/2003), was quickly located and arrested by our Fugitive Apprehension and Surveillance Team. He was booked into the Aurora Jail on 1st Degree Murder charges. A booking photo is available at the bottom of this press release.

This case continues to be investigated by our Major Crimes Homicide Unit. The identity of the deceased will be released by the Arapahoe County Coroner's Office after a positive identification has been made, and his next-of-kin has been notified.

Anyone that has information about this case is asked to call Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720.913.7867. By using Crime Stoppers, tipsters can remain anonymous and be eligible for a REWARD of up to $2,000.
