The Aurora Police Department is investigating a carjacking followed by shots fired by Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office Deputies.
On Thursday June 16, 2016 at 11:30 a.m. Aurora Police officers were dispatched to a carjacking which occurred at 13770 East Rice Place. The vehicle description and license plate was relayed to Aurora Police Department officers, and the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office.

An Arapahoe County deputy located the suspect vehicle, and attempted to conduct a traffic stop in his marked patrol vehicle. After the suspect vehicle failed to stop, the Arapahoe County deputy was given authorization to pursue, and initiate the precision immobilization technique (PIT).

An Arapahoe County Deputy initiated the PIT maneuver on the suspect vehicle temporarily disabling the vehicle. Shots were fired by the Arapahoe County deputies as they attempted to effect an arrest of the suspects. The suspect vehicle continued and then collided a second time with the deputies vehicle. The suspect vehicle was disabled in the front yard of a house east of South Winston Street and East El Dorado Place.

One adult male suspect was taken into custody and a second adult male was detained and later released. One of the suspects was transported to the hospital with minor injuries related to the vehicle collision. One Arapahoe County Sheriff’s deputy was treated for minors injuries related to the vehicle collision.

This is an ongoing investigation and interviews are still being conducted. The name of the officers involved is not being released at this time.

Detectives from the Major Crimes/Homicide Unit and Crime Scene Investigations Unit responded to the scene and took over the investigation into this case. Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call Agent Charles Mehl.
