This morning at approximately 8:15 a.m. Aurora Police were dispatched to a report of a weapons violation that had occurred in the 14400 Block of E. Mississippi Ave. 

Upon arrival officers had learned that a male subject had robbed another male at gunpoint and was seen running into a townhouse at that location.  As Officers were preparing to make telephone contact inside of the townhouse a female occupant exited and was detained by officers. Orders were given for the other occupants of the townhouse to exit, several individuals complied with the orders and exited including the male suspected of committing the original robbery. As officers at the front of the townhouse were giving commands to exit the residence, an officer posted at the rear of the location observed a male subject attempt to flee out the back door. When he observed the officer he ran back inside. 

Since it was not clear whether or not a potentially armed suspect was still inside of the residence the Aurora Police SWAT Team was mobilized. Once Detectives obtained a search warrant the SWAT Team made entry into the townhouse. They did not located any other individuals inside. Two handguns were found inside; however it is not clear at this time as to whether or not they were used during the robbery. The original suspect was taken into custody for Aggravated Robbery.  

Eastbound Mississippi Avenue was closed for several hours from S. Blackhawk St. to S. Sable Blvd. during the incident.
