AURORA, Colo. — Police in Aurora are investigating the shooting of a fourth teenager in the span of three days.

The Aurora Police Department (APD) said Sunday night that they were investigating a shooting in the 1700 block of North Chester Street.

An 18-year-old was shot, police said, and he was taken to the hospital with injuries that were not believed to be life-threatening.

APD did not give any other details or information on suspects, but they did say there is no threat to the public.

It was the third shooting involving teenagers in as many days in Aurora.

Friday evening, APD said two 16-year-old boys were shot in a vehicle in the area of East 12th Avenue and North Ironton Street.
