Police looking for suspect described as armed and dangerous after deadly Aurora shooting

Master Titus Uriah Martin, 20, is believed to be armed and could be a danger to the community, according to Aurora Police.

AURORA, Colo. — The Aurora Police Department (APD) has released the name of the suspect in a deadly shooting that happened on East Colfax Avenue early Sunday morning.

That man, Master Titus Uriah Martin, 20, is believed to be armed and a danger to the community, according to a news release distributed by APD on Friday afternoon. Despite these assertions, police did not release a description of Martin or his photo, saying it would compromise the investigation. 

He is wanted for a shooting that was reported at 1:45 a.m. Sunday on East Colfax Avenue at North Beeler Street. Police have not said what motivated the shooting. The Adams County Coroner’s Office identified the victim as Percil Walls, 31, from Memphis, Tennessee. 

Police have not said if Walls and Martin knew each other.

Police have issued a warrant for Martin's arrest on first-degree murder charges.

Anyone with information about Martin’s whereabouts is asked to call Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP.

Tipsters can remain anonymous, and information that leads to an arrest could be eligible for a $2,000 reward.
