KUSA — A person is dead and three others injured after a Sunday afternoon shooting outside an Aurora 7-Eleven near Interstate 225, police said.
The shooting happened on the southwest corner of Alameda Avenue and Potomac Street - just to the west of I-225 - at 1:38 p.m., according to Aurora Police Department Officer Kenneth Forrest.
Officers were called to a local hospital after being told several victims had gone there for treatment of apparent gunshot wounds, according to Aurora PD. One of the victims was pronounced dead at the hospital.
Two of the victims -- an adult and a juvenile -- had only suffered graze wounds, Forrest said. Another victim was admitted, but expected to survive.
No suspect is in custody for the shooting and no firm details on the number of injured victims were readily available from police.
Major Crimes detectives with Aurora PD have taken over the investigation and are "working tirelessly" to identify who is responsible for the shooting.
