Police around Denver have alerted officers about a possible threat made against multiple agencies on Tuesday night.

Denver police say they are investigating a report of a threat made by three men at the 7-Eleven off 11th Ave and Yosemite St.

They say three men made threats against the clerks inside the store saying they are related to the man who was shot and killed at the same location late Monday night.

Police say Aurora officers spotted the man in a stolen Jeep at the store parking lot and pinned the vehicle with their patrol cars.

They shot him after they say the man began ramming into a patrol car and the store while there were people inside.

The Medical Examiner's office hasn't released the man's name as of Wednesday afternoon as they continue to work on notifying his next of kin.
