One man dead, another critical in 1400 North Lima triple shooting in Aurora (24)

An Aurora neighborhood exploded in gunfire during the early hours of this morning, with three people getting hit before the muzzles stopped flashing.

One man was killed in the incident, while another is in what an Aurora Police Department rep described a short time ago as "life-threatening condition" in an area hospital. Only a woman who was also shot appears to be assured of survival.

Right now, details are few. Here's what we know so far.

At about 2:45 a.m., according to APD spokeswoman Sergeant Cassidee Carlson, officers were dispatched to the 1400 block of North Lima Street, an area captured in the interactive graphic below. If you have problems seeing the image, click "View Larger Map."

Upon their arrival, the cops found three victims, two of them inside a home -- a man who died of his wounds despite the best efforts of emergency personnel and a woman suffering from a comparatively less serious injury.

In addition, a second man was found in an alley to the west of the house in question. He remains hospitalized, his ultimate fate undetermined at this writing.

Here's a look at the crime scene via an image tweeted by 9News reporter TaRhonda Thomas:

As you can see, investigators remain at the home, but at this early stage, Carlson can't yet share what they've learned. Likewise, she declines to describe the victims beyond noting that all of them are adults, adding, "We're still trying to determine how everybody was involved with one another."

There's also the possibility of a fourth person who left the scene before officers got to the house, but Cassidee doesn't identify this individual as a suspect.

Anyone with additional info is encouraged to phone Detective Mike Prince at 303-739-6127 or Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP (7867).

This Sterling Meeks is another waste of sperm. Done with him and his useless crusade. Since he has done the research on me he is welcome to offer his assistance in anything that might be worth while in the world other than a cowardly fake identity. I for one am also proud to say I do not know him and never will. He is simply not important to me or who I am.

Besides, I bet that you were one of them douchebags feigning support for Aurora theater shooting victims after James Eagan Holmes made his own mark in history. Yeah....where's that support for child victims of gun violence in Chicago's South Side? Or Detroit? Or West Baltimore? Oh....that's just "the way things are there. They're not like us." Fucking hypocrites.

Yes while Lakewood does have crime and violence, it IS a surprise when we have a shooting as such in our area (btw that was just a few block by my house) Aurora is in the news often, your article was almost ten days ago. Aurora is notoriously in the news for one thing or another, and very rarely for good reason. Ppl talk the same way about Compton Cal. or Chicago... Dangerous places, doesn't mean violence and crime don't happen in Lincoln Nebraska, it's just that they aren't making the news every week. It's just that Aurora walks like a duck and talks like a duck. I have no ill will with Aurora but it's just always that one city that's always making trouble.

Nor do I CARE to know you, personally, dickwad. All that matters is in the end, the only "newsworthy" events that "reel 'Murkah" is concerned with are those that involve emasculated DWEEBY white young males who "snap" and shoot up others in pearly white suburbia or elsewhere where mostly pretty white people congregate. If some poor blacks/browns/reds/what-have-you kill each other over some unpaid drug debt or even merely giving each other the wrong look, "reel 'Murkah" simply disregards it as "a way of life." It's kind of how you pathetic Yanks like to constantly cry over 9/11/01, even more than a decade after its occurrence while remaining comfortably numb to the numerous "nine-elevens" elsewhere in the world -- many of which are the result of Yank foreign policy, mind you. Also, do you honestly believe that supporting trade unions or hopping on the latest "pro equality" bandwagon or any other psuedo-leftist fad somehow solidifies your progressive credentials? Hardly. In fact, trade unions are very much beholden to cutthroat capitalist pigs you claim to abhor and believe it or not, poor whites, by far, harbor a lot of racist sentiment, due in large part to being easily manipulated by -- you guessed it -- the very same cutthroat capitalist pigs. Now, go back to playing Robin Hood, pathetic DWEEB.

It isn't "news" because all of the parties involved were poor and/or minority, right? Just admit it, asshole.

Dude this isnt news, this has been happening in this neighborhood for a very long time. I can remember back in the late 80's working in the auto parts store on Nome dealing with this crap.

Aurora either needs a giant electric fence around it or free weed needs to be handed out so people calm the fuck down.

Ah yes, more "Law Abiding Gun Owners" simply exercising their constitutional right to self-defense.
