Woman killed in apparent domestic violence shooting identified

A man was found with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, but is expected to survive, police said.

AURORA, Colo. — A woman who was shot to death during an apparent domestic violence incident earlier this month has been identified.

The Arapahoe County coroner's office identified the victim as 38-year-old Demexia Dunnette Mosley.

Officers from the Aurora Police Department (APD) were called to the Glen at the Park Apartments located at 291 South Jasper Circle at 6:56 a.m. on Feb. 17.

They found Mosley and a 28-year-old man both suffering from gunshot wounds. APD said the man's injury appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound. They said he was expected to survive. As of Feb. 22, he remained in the hospital but was under "police observation", according to an APD spokesperson.

Mosley was pronounced dead at the scene, according to police.

The man and Mosley were believed to be in a relationship and police said the incident started with an argument. A gun was located at the scene, according to Officer Matthew Longshore with APD.

Police have responded to this home several times over the past couple of months, Longshore said.

Officers are attempting to talk with a teenager who was home at the time of the shooting and will be providing assistance to the teen.

Longshore provided resources for domestic violence victims during an update on Twitter:

There is a 24/7 hotline that victims can call,1-800-799-7233. Victims can also text the word "SMART" to 88788 or visit violencefreecolorado.org.
