AURORA, Colo. – A 16-year-old boy was arrested Monday in connection with a shooting that left five people injured at an Aurora apartment complex late Saturday night.

The teen, who is not being identified because he is a juvenile, was being charged with attempted first-degree murder and other criminal charges, though police did not elaborate further on what those chargers were.

In a news release sent out Monday evening, police also said they were continuing to investigate if there were any additional suspects.

No other details about the case were released.

Officers with the Aurora Police Department were called shortly before 11 p.m. Saturday to an apartment in the 17100 block of E. Adriatic Place, near E. Iliff Avenue and S. Buckley Road. The victims were taken to a hospital in serious condition but were expected to survive, according to police.

Among the injured were three juveniles over the age of 16, a news release following the shooting stated.

Police said the shooting will be investigated by the 18th Judicial District Attorney’s Office.
