Two people were shot, one fatally, as an unruly crowd left an Aurora bar early Sunday morning.
The men, whose names have not been released, were shot outside Du Rozz bar, 14569 E. Alameda Ave., around 1:40 a.m. Sunday.
According to a statement from Aurora police, officers received a call shortly before the bar closed asking for help with an out-of-control crowd. While the officers were on their way to the bar, they received a second call that said shots had been fired.
When the officers arrived, they found one man with a gunshot wound in the parking lot. The man was rushed to an area hospital where he later died.
A short time later, police said a second victim showed up at a hospital with a non-life threatening gunshot wound. That man was also shot at Du Rozz and driven to hospital in a private vehicle, police said.
The department’s Major Crime/Homicide Unit as well as the Gang Intervention Unit are investigating, police said.
Police are asking anyone with information to call Detective Mark Yacano at 303-739-6090 or Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP (7867).
The Aurora Police Reward Fund in conjunction with Crime Stoppers is offering up to $7,000 for information, police said.
The slaying was one of two fatal shootings over the Memorial Day weekend. Another man was shot to death late Monday near East Alameda Avenue and South Havana Street.
Before the shooting at Du Rozz, there had been just two homicides in Aurora this year.
