Briefing between Aurora police, city council to discuss ongoing gun violence set for July – The Denver Post

AURORA — A briefing between Aurora’s police chief and its city council to discuss ongoing gun violence in the city is tentatively scheduled for July 19.

The meeting, which Mayor Mike Coffman requested two months ago, is especially important following this weekend’s mass shooting at a Juneteenth celebration that killed a man and injured four other people.

“The incident was horrific, but the fact is that, unfortunately, we’ve had other incidences leading up to it,” Coffman said Monday.

Aurora police are still working to identify the suspects in the shooting, which happened shortly after 4 a.m. Sunday in the parking lot of a strip mall near Mississippi Avenue and Peoria Street.

On Monday, the department released audio of the shooting, which was taken from a surveillance camera from one of the businesses nearby. Detectives recovered more than 100 casings at the scene.
