Man Fatally Shot by Aurora Police Officer During Confrontation at Bus Stop

An Aurora police officer killed a man after allegedly brandishing a firearm during a confrontation with another individual at a bus stop. The incident occurred around 2:30 a.m. on Wednesday near Colfax Avenue and Havana Street, according to Aurora Police Chief Art Acevedo.

Two officers were present at the bus stop and observed the man engaging in a dispute with another person, during which he produced a semi-automatic handgun. Upon seeing the firearm, the officers intervened, prompting the man to flee. The officers repeatedly instructed him to drop the weapon and raise his hands. Subsequently, one of the officers discharged their firearm, striking the man. It remains unclear whether the man fired any shots. No officers sustained injuries during the incident. The man was pronounced dead at a hospital approximately 30 minutes later.

Investigators are currently working to determine the nature of the initial confrontation. The other individual involved in the incident is now in police custody. Witnesses at the scene fled following the shooting, and Chief Acevedo has urged anyone with information to contact the Aurora Police Department.
