Prior to the incident in Aurora, it's believed the same four people used that same vehicle in an armed robbery in Thornton. After those two robberies, they drove to Longmont and robbed the Famous Footwear on Ken Pratt Boulevard.

Longmont Police said in that incident that four young men entered the store and gathered 10 to 12 pairs of shoes, then left without paying for them. Once in the parking lot, police said, one of them fired a handgun into the air and fired one round at the store, shattering a pane of mirrored glass near the front door. No one was hurt.

The suspect who was armed during the Aurora robbery was not the same one who fired the gun in the Longmont robbery. Investigators think multiple suspects are armed or they are taking turns with the firearm when committing crimes.

 One of the four suspects has been identified and arrested, but police are asking for information about the others.

Anyone with any information about the suspects or the crimes is asked to contact Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-7867. Tipsters can remain anonymous and could be eligible for a reward of up to $2,000.
