Aurora gunshot victim drives to hospital in private vehicle 03/03/17

03/03/17 Aurora, CO – A man who was an apparent gunshot victim decided not to wait for Aurora police or Fire Rescue on this date and instead showed up at a local hospital in a private vehicle.  The shooting was was reported to APD and Aurora Fire Rescue around 12:15AM on this date.  The shooting victim location initially came in as E. 23rd Ave and N. Peoria St.  While on the way to that scene with both lights and sirens, Aurora Fire was cancelled due to the fact that the victim had showed up at neighboring University Medical Center on his own accord.  When this reporter rolled up on the intersection of 23rd and Peoria nothing was to be found.  I did however track down several Aurora cops guarding a crime scene about 10 blocks north and east of the shooting call location.  That landed me in the 12500 block of E. 30th Ave.  I could not get any officers at that scene to confirm it was where the shooting took place, but do to its proximity to 23rd and Peoria, it was likely where the whole incident began.  No motive for the shooting was made available to  The condition of the victim is not known to us either at this time.  Shane Anthony reporting
