AURORA, Colo. — The Aurora Police Department (APD) said a man was shot while driving on Interstate 70 early Monday morning.

Police said the man was driving east on I-70 near the Chambers Road exit around 1:15 a.m. when he was shot by someone inside a black 2004 or 2005 Ford F-250.

The man was able to drive himself to the hospital before contacting police, according to APD.

The man told officers he first saw the suspect vehicle in the area of I-70 and Central Park Boulevard, before seeing it again right before the shooting, and believed the vehicle was following him, according to police.

No additional information on the circumstances leading up to the shooting, or any possible connection between the victim and suspect or suspects was provided by police.
