AURORA, Colo. — The Aurora Police Department (APD) evacuated an apartment building on East Applewood Drive as officers attempted to take a barricaded suspect into custody on Thursday night.
The situation happened in the 24000 block of East Applewood Drive in east Aurora, according to police. The suspect, 42-year-old Damien Romaine Moore, is wanted on suspicion of first-degree assault and domestic violence-related false imprisonment.
All residents in Building 18 were evacuated, police said.
South Aurora Parkway was closed between Orchard Road and East Applewood Drive, APD said. They asked people to avoid the area. Roads have since been reopened.
SWAT negotiated with the suspect and worked toward resolving the situation peacefully, APD said.
APD said Moore was not caught. Police asked anyone who knows where he's at to call 911 immediately.
