(January 18) The Aurora Police Major Crimes Homicide Unit is investigating after a man was found shot, dies a short time later, in northwest Aurora.

On January 18, 2022, about 11:00 p.m., the Aurora Police Department responded to the area of East 16th Avenue and North Lansing Street on reports of a man-down. Officers located a 63-year-old man lying in the roadway, suffering from an apparent gunshot wound. This man was transported to the hospital where he was later pronounced deceased.

Detectives from the department’s Major Crimes Homicide Unit responded to the scene and will be responsible for this investigation. At this early stage in the investigation, the facts and circumstances that led up to this death, to include suspect descriptions, are still be determined.

A white truck was located nearby that had been involved in a crash. The truck was stolen and unoccupied. Detectives have towed this vehicle and will process it, but we are uncertain if this vehicle is directly related to this homicide.

The Adams County Coroner’s Office will release the victim’s name after positive identification and notification of next-of-kin.

We are seeking the public's assistance. Anyone who may have observed anything suspicious, or 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.

This is Aurora’s first homicide of 2022.
