AURORA, Colo. (CBS4)– Police in Aurora investigated a triple shooting during a robbery attempt that left one person dead, one critical and another with gunshot wounds.

“There is the potential that there are three juveniles in this community who have been shot,” said Arapahoe County District Attorney George Brauchler.

Officers rushed to 431 S. Kalispell Way on reports of a shooting just before 11 p.m. Friday. When they arrived at the Bayberry condominiums off Alameda and South Kalispell Way, officers found two males with gunshot wounds. Both were rushed to the hospital.

“We were upstairs, actually, and that’s when we heard the gunshots going off,” said Megan Manguso, who was at home less than a block away when she the shots rang out. “I was like, I’m staying inside.”

The apartment complex the white guys were moving into and site of the shooting.

Police confirmed that one of the males died at the hospital and the other was treated for critical injuries. Another male suffered non-life threatening injuries in the shooting.

Police say three white males in their 20s were moving into an apartment building when they were approached by three black males between the ages of 16-20 in the foyer of the apartment building. Those males demanded their money at gunpoint.

“Two of the movers started to hand over their money, the third mover who was in fear for his safety of his friends, pulled out his weapon,” said Aurora Police Chief Nick Metz.

During the alleged robbery, the third male who was with the moving party, grabbed a firearm and shot towards the robbery suspects. Police say he shot each one of them.

One of the suspects died, another was wounded and was in serious condition on Saturday afternoon, and the third male walked into an area hospital with a gunshot wound to the shoulder. He is expected to survive and was taken into custody on unrelated charges.

The suspects have not been identified. The man who fired the shots has not arrested or charged. Police say he was questioned and released.

“I don’t think we would call this necessarily a make-my-day issue. This is a straight up regular common sense statutorily codified self defense,” said Brauchler.


Here we go again, three young WHITE men were confronted by three BLACK youts (16-20) who demanded money AT GUNPOINT.

The result: one black dude DRT, one black critical in the hospital, the third black was wounded in the shoulder. The guy who was shot in the shoulder was arrested on “unrelated charges.” That would imply that he was either wanted on other charges or did something else to get himself arrested. These black dudes apparently weren’t choir boys.

I didn’t see it referenced in the article, but what are the odds that the black guy possessed the gun LEGALLY? Being under 21, he couldn’t legally carry it concealed, but I’ll bet it was hidden as they approached the white guys. No matter, armed robbery is already a felony anyway, so the black dudes became felons when they executed the attempted robbery. Let’s see if the Reverend Al Sharpton shows up for the DRT guy’s funeral – any bets?

    No bet on a sure thing here Garnet, you are right. It would not surprise me if these people started going in the same direction as Ferguson. I do have questions though, 1) where was this complex?in what area of city I mean. 2) what group of religion or gang were these guys in if any? No where in any of these incidents has anyone reported that.

    • Grouchy says:

      I am very familiar with that area, and it is in a quite nice area of the city. Upper middle class, I would say, or it was several years ago – the last that I was in that part of town. Upscale, but not “hoity – toity”, just a good place to live.

      Good article, Garnet. And Kudos to both the DA and the police chief, for a calm, reasoned response.

      • Garnet92 says:

        Thanks for responding GF, I didn’t have a clue about the area. The interesting thing is that it is in a nicer area, not the ghetto. The black attackers forgot one of their usual guidelines – to always attack with superior numbers – three on three didn’t give them the overwhelming numbers they usually rely on to overcome their prey. These guys must not have graduated from THUG school yet.

    So that’s what happens when young impressionable minds start to believe all those rapper songs saying, in essence, that whitey is soft, easy and afraid of negroes.

    • Garnet92 says:

      You’ve noticed that too, eh Buck? I think that some blacks are laboring under the delusion that whites are afraid of them. They’ve mistaken whites bending over backwards to try and placate them (trying to keep peace) for fear. If/when that attitude of appeasement morphs into anger, they will rue the day that they’ve awakened that “sleeping giant.”

  3. Kathy says:

    Proving again that bad guys will get their hands on guns one way or another because gun laws mean nothing to them, something our government refuses to admit.

    Kudos to the armed guy for his quick thinking and his accuracy. Although he just winged the third guy, that’s still good shooting.

    Since it didn’t involve a cop there’ll be no Al Sharpton – this one is too clearly a case of self defense.

    • Garnet92 says:

      This is just another black-on-white crime. Despite being outnumbered by whites five to one, blacks commit eight times more crimes against whites than vice-versa, according to FBI statistics from 2007. A black male is 40 times as likely to assault a white person as the reverse. It’s only logical that racial profiling OUGHT to be standard operating procedure everywhere, all the time, but NOOOO we refrain from profiling to placate blacks. When will we wake up?

      I’d LOVE to hear what “Revrund” Al has to say about this encounter?????

      I think the shoulder shot was the warning shot folks will be clamoring for in about a week after the funeral.

  4. vonmesser says:

    One down, two for jail (maybe).
    Fair results.

    • Garnet92 says:

      Right VM, I know that some call us bloodthirsty, but frankly when ANYONE attempts to rob another person at gunpoint (regardless of race), the robber has relinquished his/her right to continue living in society and extermination is appropriate. Fair is right. excellent would have been three DRTs.

      • Buck says:

        Exactly! When a person invades your home or attempts to rob you on the street he is, in essence, forcing you to play a game you have no desire but no choice except to play. The game: He is betting his life that he can take what is yours and get away.
        So when you are forced to play his game and you win if you don’t take what he bet you are cheating yourself in the game you were forced to play.

        • Garnet92 says:

          Well put, Buck. Every perp has an opportunity to weigh the pros and cons of an armed robbery or home invasion. I doubt that many do give much credence to the chance that they’ll be stopped by a tiny 90 – 230 grain projectile, but the chance is there – they’re betting their life that the victim won’t fight back (and be successful). It only reinforces how ignorant most criminals are.

          This is especially true in a state like Texas where so many citizens are armed. We don’t like the “game” being forced on us – we’d rather not play – but if the game is forced on us – we’ll play to win.

  5. Clyde says:

    Too bad it wasn’t THREE DRT’s. And WHAT the HELL gives with the media asshats going on with this prattle about “alleged” robbery? W-T-F was “alleged” ? The knee-grows DEMANDED , at the goddamned POINT OF A GUN, to give it up. Stupid assed media morons anyway.

    Oooh, oooh… a DRT post!!!! I love it when good citizens erase dirt.

    Late entry, but anyway. …if you’re upstairs and hear gunfire, you grab a rifle and go to the Window on the off chance you get to snipe a bad guy, I mean, c’mon
