AURORA, Colo. — Officers with the Aurora Police Department (APD) are investigating a shooting that happened Monday night in the parking lot of a Burger King.

The shooting happened in the parking lot of the Burger King located at 625 N. Peoria St. at about 8:30 p.m., according to a tweet from APD. That's near North Peoria Street and East 6th Avenue in Aurora.

The victim, a 50-year-old man, was driven to a local hospital suffering from a gunshot wound, according to police. 

A 19-year-old man was arrested for reckless endangerment for firing a shot in a parking lot, APD said. Police said they are looking for a second teenaged suspect who they believe fired the shot that hit the victim.
