Police investigate Aurora shooting; 3 Cherry Creek schools removed from secure perimeter

AURORA, Colo. - Aurora police are investigating a bizarre shooting involving two men, one of whom died from his injuries.

A man who was shot multiple times, apparently got into his car, tried to drive away, but hit a tree. Officers took the man to the hospital, but he didn't survive.

Police investigating the shooting found a second man in the area who was shot in the arm.

At this point, Aurora Police said they don't know what sparked the shooting. Police said they are not looking for suspects.

"We're still interviewing everyone that was involved in this incident, trying to determine what happened," said Sgt. Chris Amsler. "We're not looking for anyone else that was involved in this incident, so there's no concern for public safety in the area."

The shooting happened near South Espana Way and West Navarro Drive around 7:15 a.m.

Three nearby schools -- Sunrise Elementary School, Horizon Middle School and Sky Vista Middle School -- were placed on secure perimeter for a short time. Secure perimeter in the Cherry Creek School District means all exterior doors are closed and locked. Normal in-building activity continues.
