AURORA, Colo. — A juvenile has been detained in connection with a fatal shooting early Tuesday morning at hotel in Aurora, according to an update from the Aurora Police Department (APD).
Around 5:15 a.m., officers responded to a shooting at the Homewood Suites at 3705 North Chambers Road, which is the Hometown Suites. They located an adult man inside a hotel room who had been shot. That man later died from his injuries and his death is being investigated as a homicide, according to APD.
