Fatal Shooting on Clinton Street in Aurora Being Investigated as Homicide (12)
As investigators in Denver seek the person or persons who killed in-demand video producer Phil Lucero, their colleagues in Aurora are hard at work on another homicide -- one that took place late last night. Here's what we know thus far.
A photo from the scene tweeted by 7News photojournalist Pete Burd. Another image and more below.
Confirmation of gunplay came courtesy of the Aurora Police Department, which tweeted the following after midnight:

Supplementary tweets from the APD (with the last two sent out minutes ago at this writing) add the following:

To say that additional details are scarce is to understate the situation considerably. Thus far, there isn't even confirmation of the victim's gender, let alone any other pertinent information about the wheres and the whys of the shooting. But no matter how everything went down, you can bet there are friends, family and loved ones shaken by the incident in Aurora and beyond.
