AURORA — Aurora police need information about the suspect in a shooting of a 13-year-old boy around midnight Thursday morning.

The teenager was shot in the leg while he was inside his house in Aurora, at the intersection of N. Kittredge Street and Maxwell Place, according to the Aurora Police Department.

The shots were fired from outside of the home, APD said. Then an unknown pickup truck was seen immediately leaving the area.

Aurora Police Department Interim Chief Art Acevedo said in a press conference later in the day that this shooting appeared to be targeted and there was a recent drive-by at the home, which was not reported.

He said the teen is going to be OK.

Acevedo added that he believes the shooting is gang-related.

If you have any information about this incident, APD asks you to contact Crime Stoppers Colorado at 720-913-7867.
