AURORA, Colo. – Police are looking for a suspect after a shooting in an Aurora neighborhood left one man dead.

The shooting occurred Thursday around 3 p.m. near East Louisiana Avenue and South Yampa Way, near Buckley Air Force Base. The circumstances surrounding the shooting are still unknown.

Police have yet to release suspect information, but investigators believe the shooting was an isolated incident and don’t believe there is a threat to others in the community. Investigators are following on up leads and interviewing witnesses.

Aerial footage from AIRTRACKER7 showed investigators around what looked to be clothing in the middle of a residential street. Crime tape covered a broad swath of the area.

The identity of the victim is not being released at this time.
