AURORA | A 13-year-old boy inside his Aurora home was shot and injured early Thursday from gunfire outside his house, police said.

“The shots were fired from outside of the home, and an unknown pickup truck was seen leaving the area immediately following the shots,” police said in a tweet.

The shooting occurred at about midnight along the 1700 block of Kittridge Street. 

The unidentified boy was shot in the leg and taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. His condition was not reported.

It’s unclear from initial police reports whether the boy or his house were targeted in the shooting.

Police said anyone with information can call Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-7867. Tipsters can remain anonymous and still be eligible for a reward of up to $2,000, police said.
