Two more teens arrested in connection to drive-by shooting in Aurora

Two more teenage suspects were arrested Friday in connection to the drive-by shooting of six teens in Aurora.

One suspect, a 15-year-old, was arrested at about 12:30 p.m. as he was getting into a vehicle at a shopping center near East 6th Avenue and Chambers Road, police said in news release. The second suspect, 16, was arrested about 10 minutes later at a traffic stop in the 300 block of Potomac Street. The department’s Fugitive Apprehension and Surveillance Team (FAST) and   SWAT team made the arrests without incident.

Both suspects were arrested on suspicion of attempted first-degree murder, police said.

The shooting happened on Nov. 15 in Nome Park, East 12th Avenue and Nome Street, adjacent to Aurora Central High School. The day of the incident, five of the teens — three boys and two girls, between the ages of 14 and 17 — were transported by ambulance to area hospitals. An 18-year-old drove himself to the hospital with minor injuries, police said. One victim underwent emergency surgery.

The day of the shooting, teenagers in the park exchanged gunfire with the teens in the vehicles, a Chevrolet Tahoe and Chrysler 300, police said.

Two other 15-year-old suspects in the ongoing case were arrested on Nov. 22 and 23. They have been charged with attempted first-degree murder.
