According to the Denver Post, police responded to two calls involving gun fire a few blocks away from each other in Aurora. The first call came from a report that someone heard gunshots. The police arrived at an apartment complex to find a man with a gunshot wound lying on the ground near a running car. He was taken to the hospital, but was pronounced dead. Shortly thereafter a call came in from a man who said a stranger had showed up at his door with a gunshot wound. That man was taken to a hospital as well; his condition is not reported. Police have not made any comment as to whether the two cases may be related.
