Suspect arrested months after man fatally shot in Aurora

Jeremiah Lashae Quashawn Cannady died June 23 after he was shot days earlier near East Alameda Avenue and South Jamaica Street.

AURORA, Colo. — A suspect was arrested this week in connection with a fatal shooting last June in Aurora.

Darrion Rouse, 28, faces a charge of first-degree murder related to the death of Jeremiah Lashae Quashawn Cannady on June 23. Rouse was arrested Tuesday after a warrant was issued for his arrest last week.

On June 20, 2022, officers with the Aurora Police Department (APD) responded to reports of a shooting near East Alameda Avenue and South Jamaica Way.

When they arrived they found Cannady inside a gold Volkswagen Jetta, suffering from a gunshot wound. He was taken to the hospital and died from his injuries three days later.

Rouse made his initial court appearance Wednesday and is due back in court on Jan. 23.
