Aurora Police are investigating a shooting in Southeast Aurora that has left one man dead and another critically injured.

At 1:04 a.m. this morning the Aurora Police Public Safety Communications Center received several reports of shots fired in the area of 15200 East Girard Avenue. Upon arrival officers discovered a deceased male subject who had been shot in the rear parking lot of the Hancock Office Park. A short time later officers received a second report that another subject who had been shot was in the front yard of a residence in the 3300 block of South Granby Street. That male was transported to a local hospital with life threatening injuries. Investigators believe that the two victims are connected to one shooting incident that occurred at the office park.

The name of the victim is not being released at this time it will be released by the Arapahoe County Coroner’s Office once a positive identification has been made and his next of kin have been notified.
