Several found shot inside vehicle at end of police pursuit

ADAMS COUNTY, Colo. — Multiple law enforcement agencies were investigating after a pursuit ended with multiple people found shot inside a vehicle early Sunday.

It is believed the shooting happened at Alton Street and East 17th Avenue in Aurora and the people in the vehicle flagged down an ambulance.

The vehicle fled from the ambulance crew and a police stop was authorized at East 45th Avenue and Havana Street shortly before 4 a.m. according to
Technician Katherine McCandless with the Denver Police Department.

“It was believed there may be people injured inside the vehicle in need of help. That is when officers noticed the vehicle had several bullet holes,” said Technician McCandless.

The Adams County Sheriff’s office received a request for urgent cover for the pursuit as it passed I-270 and Quebec, Sgt. Adam Sherman, told Denver7.

The vehicle crashed at U.S. 36 and Pecos. “Our deputies arrived to the crash scene and began coordinating medical transportation for the occupants,” Sherman said.

Multiple victims were found shot inside the vehicle and no officers fired their weapons, according to Technician McCandless.

There was a Denver Police vehicle with heavy front-end damage. It was not immediately clear if it had collided with the vehicle officers were pursuing.

The southbound lanes of Pecos were closed at Cortez Street and the ramp from Pecos to westbound U.S. 36 was closed for the investigation.
