2 people including teen shot in Aurora, police looking for suspect

Both victims were shot in the leg about 4:45 a.m. Sunday in the parking lot of a LaQuinta Inn, Aurora Police said.

AURORA, Colo. — A man and a 17-year-old male were shot Sunday morning in the parking lot of a LaQuinta Inn, the Aurora Police Department (APD) said on Twitter.

Police said the shooting happened at 4:45 a.m. at 1500 S. Abilene St. after a dispute. APD did not provide a description of any suspects but said they drove a white sedan, possibly a Volkswagen Jetta.

The victims were driven to a hospital, which was when police were notified, said an APD spokesman. The victims suffered injuries that were not life-threatening, APD said.

The case was still under investigation. Anyone with information was asked to call Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-7867 or visit metrodenvercrimestoppers.com. Tipsters can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward of up to $2,000. 

Metro Denver Crime Stoppers works by assigning a code to people who anonymously submit a tip. Information is shared with law enforcement, and Crime Stoppers are notified at the conclusion of the investigation.
