1 man killed after shooting in Aurora

The shooting happened Tuesday night near East 16th Avenue and Lansing Street.

AURORA, Colo. — A 63-year-old man has died after being shot near East 16th Avenue and Lansing Street in Aurora.

At about 11 p.m. on Tuesday, the Aurora Police Department (APD) was called to the scene and found a man lying in the roadway, who had been shot. The man was transported to the hospital where he later died.

In an update, APD said the man had died from his injuries and the shooting is being investigated as a homicide.

A white truck was found near the scene that had been involved in a crash, APD said in a release. The truck was stolen and unoccupied, police said.

Investigators towed the truck and are processing it for evidence, according to police. It is unclear if the vehicle was directly related to the homicide, APD said.

Police do not have information about the suspects.
