Teen shot in Denver, driven to Aurora, police say

The shooting happened in Denver, but afterward the victim was driven to Aurora where 911 was called, according to police.

DENVER — A teenager was taken to the hospital late Thursday night following a shooting, according to a tweet from the Aurora Police Department (APD).

Officers were called to the 2700 block of Quintero Street, near East Yale Avenue and South Buckley Road, just before 11 p.m. and found the male victim. He was taken to the hospital and a Denver Police spokesperson said he's expected to survive his injuries.

APD investigators determined that the shooting actually occurred earlier in the area of East 8th Avenue and Quebec Street in Denver's Montclair neighborhood.

Following the shooting, the victim was driven to the Aurora address on Quintero Street where 911 was called.

Since it is believed the shooting took place within Denver city limits, APD said that Denver Police will be taking over the investigation. DPD said no suspects have been identified.
