Hoffman Heights woman shot dead in Tuesday drive-by shooting


AURORA | A 47-year-old Aurora woman was shot dead inside her Hoffman Heights home early Tuesday after multiple rounds were fired from a car, in what police are calling a drive-by shooting.

Police were called to the house in the 1200 block of Worchester Street just before 2 a.m. Tuesday after the shooting was reported.

Police said a car pulled up in front of the home and someone inside fired multiple rounds. A woman inside the house was struck and injured, police said.

“The suspect vehicle fled the area after the shooting,” Aurora Police Lt. Chris Amsler said in a statement. “The victim was transported to a local hospital where she later died from her injuries. At this time there is no information available regarding the description of the suspect(s) or the involved vehicle.”

The Arapahoe County Coroner’s Office on Wednesday identified the slain woman as Candice Beavers. Her death has formally been deemed a homicide.

Anyone with information about this case to contact Metro Denver Crime Stoppers. Tipsters can remain anonymous and are eligible for a reward of up to $2,000.

It’s unbelievable that this is what happens in the United States of America. We all knew that the proliferation of guns would lead to this type of behavior, but we simply ignored the facts because of our partisanship. Unfortunately, we have made our bed and now the people are forced to lay in it. Good for us, right?
