AURORA, Colo. – Detectives with the Aurora Police Department are looking for two persons of interest following a shooting that left one juvenile dead inside a hotel Wednesday night.
The shooting, which took place at the Quality Inn located at 3300 N. Ouray Street, was reported to police at 7:05 p.m.
When police arrived at the scene of the shooting, which they said happened near the pool, they found a 16-year-old boy suffering from an apparent gunshot wound. The boy was pronounced dead at the scene.
Two women – ages 20 and 19 – were taken to the hospital in serious condition and a fourth victim self-transported to the hospital, according to police. That fourth victim, who was not identified by their age, is expected to survive. In total, five people were shot during the altercation, police said.
