Aurora Police responded about 12:30 a.m. Sunday February 17, 2019 to a report of a shooting in the block of 400 East Park Avenue. Police on arrival found a male victim, who suffered multiple gunshot wounds, sitting in a vehicle parked in a driveway in a residential neighborhood just east of downtown Aurora.
Aurora Fire Department paramedics transported the victim to a hospital in Aurora, where he underwent surgery and continues to be treated, according to Aurora Police Department. The male victim, listed in critical condition, is an 18 year-old resident of Montgomery — a suburb just southwest of Aurora.
Initially there was no description of a suspect, but it appears that whoever shot the man, approached the vehicle on foot, and then opened fire.
