(October 31) The Aurora Police Major Crimes Homicide Unit is investigating after a man was shot and killed in northwest Aurora.

On October 31, 2021, at approximately 6:15 a.m., the Aurora Police Department responded to 1592 North Boston Street on reports of a shooting. Officers located a man in his 50's suffering from a gunshot wound. The man was transported to a local hospital where he has since been pronounced deceased.

Detectives from the department's Major Crimes Homicide Unit responded to the scene and will be responsible for this investigation. Initial information is that an argument between the victim and the suspect occurred prior to the suspect pulling out a firearm and shooting the victim. Detectives are actively working to positively identify the suspect, who left the scene prior to police arrival, but no arrests have been made.

The identity of the deceased will be released by the Adams County Coroner’s Office after the victim has been positively identified and his next-of-kin notified.

Detectives will continue interviewing witnesses but are asking anyone that may have observed this incident, and have not yet spoken to police, to please reach out to the Aurora Police Major Crimes Homicide Unit or the Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720.913.7867, where tipsters can remain anonymous.
