Police said officers were responding to a report of "street racers" when they found two who had been shot.

AURORA, Colo. — Two juveniles were found shot at a possible street racing event in Aurora Monday morning, according to the Aurora Police Department (APD).

APD said they responded to East Alameda Avenue and South Peoria Street for reports of "street racers" who were blocking the intersection and shooting off fireworks. 

When police arrived at the scene they found two juveniles, a boy and a girl, who had been shot, police said. Police said the victims suffered from non-life-threatening injuries and are expected to survive. 

Police said a suspect was at large, but did not provide any additional information.

East Alameda Avenue and South Peoria Street, which is near the Aurora Hills Golf Course, were closed as police investigated the incident. Roads have since been reopened.
