Aurora parking lot dispute turns lethal after man, 18, shot dead Wednesday afternoon


AURORA | Police say a parking lot altercation between two men Monday afternoon in Aurora turned deadly when one of the men pulled out a gun and shot the other, according to Aurora police.

Police were called to the parking lot of Sable Cove Townhomes at about 3:45 after reports of a shooting there.

“Upon arrival they located a 18-year-old man in the parking lot of 14581 E. Ford Place who had been shot,” Aurora Police Lt. Chris Amsler said in a statement. “ The man was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.”

The Arapahoe County Coroner’s Office on Wednesday identified the teen who was killed as Jayden Lee Phillips. He was shot multiple times, and his death has been formally deemed a homicide.

Investigators said Phillips and another man were arguing in the parking lot before Phillips was killed.

At this time no arrests have been made, but police said they have spoken with “a person of interest” in the case. Authorities have not yet released that person’s name or age.

Rage in the moment leading to a lifetime imprisonment. Sad.
