There was a report of a shooting on East Applewood Drive in the Southlands neighborhood just before 1 p.m. Sunday, Aurora police said in a news release late Sunday.
When APD officers arrived at the scene, they found a 38-year-old man who had been shot, the Sunday news release said. They gave him CPR until medical responders arrived on scene and took him to the hospital. He later died from his injuries.
The Arapahoe County Corner's Office will release the man's identity after his family has been told.
Witnesses told APD they saw the man's stepson Mark Sisneros leaving the apartment after the shooting. He later returned and was arrested by Aurora police.
Sisneros was booked into jail on one charge of second-degree murder.
The investigation into what exactly happened is ongoing, Aurora police said.
