Man killed in Christmas shooting identified

Eric Reedy, 35, was shot during an argument in an Aurora parking lot and later died, police said.

AURORA, Colo. — A man who was shot and killed in Aurora on Christmas night has been identified.

The Arapahoe County coroner's office on Wednesday identified the man as 35-year-old Eric Fitzgerald Reedy.

Aurora Police (APD) first sent a tweet about the shooting at around 7:30 p.m. on Dec. 25.

The shooting happened near North Oakland Street and East 1st Avenue, which is just west of Aurora Hills Golf Course. According to the coroner's release, Reedy was shot in a parking lit on that area.

He  was taken to a hospital where he later died, police said.

Through investigation, police found that an argument outside the apartment complex led up to the shooting. APD said Reedy and another man were arguing and at some point, a gun was fired.

APD said the suspected shooter, a 33-year-old man, stayed on the scene and is cooperating with the investigator. Police have not made an arrest in the investigation.
