Really? So, should we label this as unusual in Aurora at 1575 Galena? Further, to be thrown into the bin of unpredictable news in old Aurora? What’s uncommon is for the city to not have a shooting/ hit and run death or two every week. This particular one has a little more history, to anyone bothering to pay attention.

Police were called to the apartment at 1575 Galena St. at about 10 p.m. Friday after neighbors reported a disturbance from a first-floor apartment in the Nordic Arms Apartments complex.

Rescuers on the scene discovered the boy dead after being shot. Investigators are trying to piece together how the shooting occurred.

Aurora Police Chief Nick Metz was at the scene after the shooting and told reporters that police were interviewing family members at the apartment and had not determined as of late Friday how the boy was shot. A weapon was confiscated from the scene, but Metz said police had not yet determined if it was the gun used in the shooting.
