6 teens injured in drive-by shooting near Denver area school

AURORA, Colo. (AP) — Police say six teenagers were wounded in a drive-by shooting in a park near a suburban Denver high school, but all are expected to survive.

The victims in Monday’s shooting range in age from 14 to 18. Aurora police chief Vanessa Wilson says the victims are all students at Aurora Central High School. She says multiple rounds from different guns were found at the scene and some may have also been fired by someone on foot.

Three patients from the shooting were taken to Children’s Hospital Colorado. They were in stable condition and have all been reunited with their families, spokesperson Caitlin Jenney said.

The school was put on a “secure perimeter” because of the shooting, police said. That typically means no one is allowed in or out of a school but students and staff are able to move freely within the building.

Police are asking for neighbors and other bystanders to share any videos or photos from phones or house surveillance systems that might help detectives identify suspects.
