(April 1) The Aurora Police Department's Major Crimes Homicide Unit is investigating after an officer discovered a woman who had been shot Saturday evening near East 6th Avenue and North Del Mar Circle.

Just after 6:30 p.m., Saturday, April 1, an Aurora police officer was flagged down by a neighbor, saying that a female was bleeding. An officer located a 36-year-old woman who was critically injured and performed CPR on her until she was rushed to the hospital by medical personnel. Unfortunately, the woman was pronounced dead from apparent gunshot wounds shortly after arriving at the hospital.

Detectives from the Major Crime Homicide Unit responded to the scene and are the lead investigators for this incident. The circumstances leading up to the shooting are still under investigation and detectives are actively pursuing leads. No arrests have been made as of Saturday night.

The Arapahoe County Coroner's Office will release the name of the woman after positive identification and notification of next of kin.

Detectives are asking those living in the E. 6th Ave and Del Mar Circle area to review any external surveillance footage between 6 - 6:30 p.m. and notify police of anything suspicious. Additionally, anyone with information about this homicide is asked to contact Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720.913.STOP (7867).
