Photo: Do you recognize gunman who shot clerk at Pleasures adult store?
Update: Yesterday, we told you about the shooting of an employee during what appeared to be a robbery at a Pleasures adult store in Aurora; see our previous coverage below.
Big photo and more below.
Now, representatives of the Aurora Police Department have released a surveillance photo of the man who pulled the trigger.
See a larger version of the image below, and get the latest about an increased reward being dangled in the case.
As we've reported, the incident took place just after 2 p.m. Sunday at the Pleasures branch located on Havana. The sole employee on the job at the time was shot in the chest and the gunman managed to get away -- for now. Fortunately, the clerk is expected to survive.
In the wake of the attack, reports circulated about surveillance video, with the suggestion that cameras had caught the shooter before he pulled a blue bandanna over the lower half of his face. But thus far, the APD hasn't released any footage -- investigators need to finish interviews and other followup before it will be made public, department spokesman Officer Frank Fania notes -- and the sole image shared to date shows the aforementioned bandanna very much in place.
Here's the pic:
Even though the image is clear, the bandanna and hoodie worn by the man will make identification a challenge. However, the APD is offering an additional incentive to look close. The previous reward for information on the perpetrator was the standard $2,000 offered through Crime Stoppers. Now, that number has been boosted to $2,500, bringing the total to $4,500.
Who to call if you recognize the man with his finger on the trigger? Detective Matt Ingui at 303-739-6067 or Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP (7867).
Here's the initial 9News report on the shooting.
