Several people have been taken into custody after an hour-long standoff with police that was sparked by a fatal shooting Friday in the suburb of Aurora.
Police responded to the shooting at around 4:45 p.m. in the 300 block of South Spencer Street and found a man with gunshot wounds, Aurora police said in a statement.
The man was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.
“Several neighbors and witnesses in the area provided key information and video evidence to officers, which enabled investigators to obtain a search warrant for a resident of the 700 block of South Spencer Street,” police said.
A special response team executed the search warrant at a house at around 1 a.m. on Saturday, police said. Officers knocked on the door and told residents to get out, but they did not come out immediately.
Over the next two hours, five men, a woman and three children left the house, police said.
However, there were still two people inside, police said, and a negotiator was called to the scene but also failed to get them out.
Officers entered the house just after 3:45 a.m. and took the two into custody, police said. An infant was also found inside the house.
“Several people have been taken into custody and interviews are currently underway,” police said.
