(December 25) An argument at the Chelsea Park Village Apartments leads to shots being fired, leaving one dead.

On December 25, 2021, at approximately 06:36 p.m., the Aurora Police Department responded to the Chelsea Park Village Apartments, located at 86 North Oakland Street, on reports of a shooting. Officers located a 35-year-old male suffering from a gunshot wound. He was transported to the hospital, where he later died from his injuries.

Investigators from the Major Crimes Homicide Unit responded to the scene and will be responsible for investigating this homicide. The initial investigation reveals that there was an argument between two adult males outside of the apartment complex, who were known to each other. At some point during the argument, both adults produced firearms, and one of them shot the other. The shooter, a 33-year-old male, was not injured and stayed on the scene, and is cooperating with investigators. All witnesses on the scene are cooperating with investigators.

The Arapahoe County Coroner’s Office will release the identity of the deceased after he has been positively identified and next-of-kin notified.

Detectives are actively working to determine who the primary aggressor is and the circumstances leading up to the shots being fired, but no arrests have been made at this moment. This investigation is ongoing. There is no threat to the public.

Anyone with information that has not yet spoken to police is asked to reach out to the Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720.913.7867, where tipsters can remain anonymous and still be eligible for a reward of up to $2,000.
