AURORA, Colo. — The Aurora Police Department Major Crime Homicide Unit is working to identify a suspect after a woman was shot and killed Thursday evening.

The incident happened around 6:54 p.m. at an apartment building in the 10700 block of East Exposition Avenue.

According to the Aurora police, a woman was on the phone with her sister when she overheard an argument followed by several gunshots. The woman hung up and called 911.

Responding officers made their way to the apartment and tried to "make contact" with someone inside, the department said. When no one answered the door, officers went inside and found a woman suffering from a gunshot. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Aurora PD only identified the woman as a 35-year-old Aurora resident. The Arapahoe County Coroner's Office will release her identity at a later time.

Aurora police said the suspect has not yet been positively identified and no arrests have been made. Anyone with information is asked to call Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-7867.
