(July 19) On July 18th, 2022 around 12:45 p.m. Aurora Police Officers located a wanted fugitive at 438 North Oswego Street. The suspect, an adult male 27 years-old, had an active arrest warrant from the State of Georgia for a homicide that occurred in Roswell, Georgia on July 6th, 2022.

Once officers confirmed that the suspect was inside the location, SWAT responded to the scene. Other occupants of the home, acquaintances of the suspect, were able to exit the home. The suspect was given orders to leave the home, but he refused and remained inside. The Aurora Police Department Crisis Negotiations Team also responded to the address and team members were able to initiate communications with the suspect. Over the course of several hours, negotiators continued to try and convince the male to exit the home, unarmed.

Aurora Police Department requested the assistance of Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office and Deputies responded to the scene. We also received assistance from Littleton Police Department and Englewood Police Department.

At 9:37 p.m. officers on scene heard multiple gunshots from inside the home. At that time, officers did not return fire. They continued to try and communicate with the suspect using the public address system on the Armored Response and Rescue Vehicles that were on scene. He remained uncooperative and fired several more rounds throughout the course of the night.

At about 2:18 a.m. the suspect exited the home, armed with a rifle. Shots were fired by one Aurora Police Officer and one Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Deputy. Medical care was provided by Aurora Fire Rescue, and the suspect was transported to the hospital. He did not survive his wounds.

The Aurora Police Officer and Arapahoe County Deputy who fired their weapons were equipped with department-issued body cameras, which will be used in this ongoing investigation. The have been placed on paid administrative leave per each department's policy.

The Critical Incident Response Team (CIRT) for the 18th Judicial District responded and will be investigating this officer-involved shooting incident. The CIRT Team conducts independent, multi-agency investigations into officer-involved shootings that occur in Arapahoe, Douglas, and Elbert County.

The 27 year-old man who was shot and killed has been identified as Fabien Perry. A drivers license photograph of Fabien is below, courtesy of the Roswell (GA) Police Department. 

If you have any information about this incident, please contact Metro Denver Crime Stoppers.
