AURORA, Colo. — Police are looking for who shot a man early Wednesday morning in east Aurora.

Aurora Police (APD) said officers responded to a report of shots fired in the 1300 block of South Florence Street about 12:15 a.m. That area is a little south of East Mississippi Avenue and just east of South Dayton Street.

Once officers got on scene, they found a sedan in a parking lot lane that was idling with its lights on. Officers found the victim inside the car suffering from a gunshot wound, police said.
