AURORA, Colo. - Aurora police said an employee of the Pleasures adult store was shot Sunday afternoon.
Crime scene tape blocked off the store at South Havana and East Jewell at 2:45 p.m. and at least 3 police vehicles were parked outside.
When police arrived, they found an employee inside suffering from at least one gunshot wound. He was transported to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries.
At this time, police are unsure if this was a robbery or what may have led up to the shooting.
Police were given a vague description of the suspect. He is described as a black male, possibly in his twenties, 5 feet 7 to 5 feet 9 inches tall, weighing 150 pounds, with one-inch “afro” type hair.
The suspect was last seen wearing a black hoodie, blue bandana over his face, light colored blue jeans, and white tennis shoes. It is unknown if he left on foot or in a car but he was last seen running towards the rear of the business, according to police.
