More than two weeks later, on Aug. 21, Cherry Hills officer Corey Slack was shot responding to a home burglary. He's had four surgeries and is still recovering. A juvenile was arrested last week. Police are still looking for other suspects.
Those are just three of the ten cases since early August.
Aurora police say as tragic as the shootings are, the men and women in blue put their lives on the line every day. They're not saying why there have been so many shootings lately, but they say danger comes with the job.
“Things can happen in terms of officers putting themselves in harm's way," said Aurora Police Officer Kenneth Forrest. "Our goal is to keep our officers safe and keep our community safe."
As for Esteban Hernandez, he says enough is enough.
“I don't think we tolerate each other like we used to."
