Man killed in Aurora shooting identified

Joaquin Eliseo Orellana Orellana died and another man was injured in the shooting just before 11 p.m. Monday at 1670 S. Chambers Road.

AURORA, Colo. — The Aurora Police Department (APD) was investigating after two people were shot and one of them died Monday night.

Officers were called to Pitchers Sports Bar, 1670 S. Chambers Road, for a report of shots fired, according to a tweet from APD. That's near South Chambers Road and East Mexico Drive in Aurora.

Two men who were in a parked vehicle were shot. One of them died and the other suffered life-threatening injuries, APD said. 

The victim who died was identified as 30-year-old Joaquin Eliseo Orellana Orellana by the Arapahoe County Coroner's Office. The cause of death was multiple gunshot wounds.

On Tuesday morning, investigators were at a second scene in the 1600 block of South Idalia Circle that preliminary evidence showed was connected to the shooting, APD said.

A photo released by APD showed what appeared to be bullet holes in a window. A police spokesman said bullets went into a townhouse and it appeared no one was home at the time.

There was no suspect information, and the investigation into the shooting is ongoing.
