Triple Shooting In Aurora Leaves 1 Dead, 1 Critical

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.”
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?
