AURORA - No witnesses, no suspects and no leads so far in a homicide investigation on the east side of Sand Creek Park, according to Aurora Police.

The Aurora Police Department is looking for anyone who may have seen what happened to a man that was killed near East 28th Avenue and Wheeling Street.

Police are still trying to determine when the crime happened, if the man's murder was a random act of violence, or if there was some other motivation behind the crime.

Police were called out to the area of East 28th Avenue and Wheeling Street around 5 p.m. Wednesday, where they found a man with several wounds. Police said the victim was taken to a nearby hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

At this time, the victim's name has not been released.

In a tweet just before 10 p.m. Wednesday, Aurora Police said the scene was being secured until a crime scene investigation unit could process the scene in the morning.

Upon daylight Thursday, large pools of dried blood and at least a dozen evidence markers could be seen on a pedestrian bridge that stretches over a ditch between East 28th Avenue and the Sand Creek Regional Greenway Trail, a trail that goes through Sand Creek Park.

Thursday morning, Aurora Police Department Public Information Officer Frank Fania said if there are any updates on the case police will issue a press release.

This story will be updated as more information becomes available.
