Arapahoe County SWAT team investigates 'accidental' gunshot that pierced the walls of 5 condo units

Sheriff: Woman who fired gun could not be found

ARAPAHOE COUNTY, Colo - Arapahoe County SWAT officers responded to a condominium complex where a female resident fired a shot that pierced the walls of five units on Tuesday afternoon.

No one was injured by the gunshot, which was reported about 2:52 p.m. at the condominium complex at 7474 E. Arkansas Ave., Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson said in a news release.

Residents told deputies that a woman living in unit 701 said she accidentally fired a gun inside her condo. She urged neighbors to "not to call the police," Robinson said. Residents said the woman was not injured.

Deputies confirmed the bullet went from the gun owner's unit into units 702, 703, 704 and 705.

Deputies knocked on the unit of the gun owner, but she did not answer. After evacuating several surrounding units as a precaution, the Sheriff’s Office SWAT Team forced entry into unit 701, but the woman wasn’t inside.

Robinson said the investigation ongoing.
