Aurora police arrest man suspected of killing a man after stealing a car, robing homes

After the shooting death of a man, several carjackings, two home invasions and two car crashes that injured others, Aurora police say they have a man in custody.

Police responded to a possible carjacking at 14082 East Iowa Drive in the Florida Station Apartments complex at 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday when they learned a man had been shot. Police say the man was taken to a hospital, where he later died from his wounds.

Investigators’ initial look detailed that the victim approached the man, who showed his gun and fired. The shooter then stole the deceased man’s vehicle and left, police say.

Authorities believe that this suspect then committed two home invasion robberies and several more carjackings across Aurora and into Denver.

Police also say the man-caused two different crashes that injured people, the first was in Denver, and the second was on 56th Avenue, near E470 in Aurora. The final crash was where Denver police picked up the possible perp at about 5 p.m. on Wednesday, the Aurora Police Department said in a release.

The suspect was taken into custody and is now in the hospital for injuries sustained in the crashes.

Aurora police are asking those with information to reach out to them. They stressed that these incidents are under an open investigation.
