Aurora police officer, firefighters, and paramedics responded about 4:45 p.m. on Friday, January 15, 2021 to a 9-1-1 that a person was shot in the block of 300 South Spencer Street. When officers arrived on the scene, they found a man suffering from gunshot wounds. The scene was confirmed to be secure by police and Aurora Fire Department paramedics pronounced the man dead on the scene.
Detectives from the Aurora Police Department’s Bureau of Investigations assigned to the case responded to the scene and began investigating the specific circumstances of the incident. Evidence Technicians also responded to the scene to identify and collect forensic evidence from the shooting. Officers and detectives conducted a canvass of the neighborhood to collect potential information from neighbors to assist with the investigation.
Several neighbors and witnesses in the area provided key information and video evidence to officers, which allowed investigators to obtain a search warrant for a resident in the block of 700 South Spencer Street.
At approximately 1:00 a.m. on Saturday, APD’s Special Response Team (SRT) executed the search warrant. SRT members knocked on the door and made numerous announcements to have all occupants inside the home exit immediately, but none of the occupants complied. Over the next two hours, five adult males, one adult female and three children exited the home.
APD’s Negotiator Unit was also on the scene and made contact with someone inside the home to try and get the additional persons inside the home to leave, but they were unsuccessful in getting them to exit.
Nearly three hours after SRT members arrived at the home, some people inside the home continue to refuse to come out the home. Just after 3:45 a.m., SRT members made entry into the home and took the remaining two people inside the home into custody. An infant was also found inside the house.
Several people were taken into custody and interviews are currently underway. The investigation into the homicide remains on-going.
Aurora police stated that the incident was an “isolated incident” and that there is no threat to the community.
