Today’s dramatic daylight arrest took place around 4PM just South and West of Monaco and Evans near a Chase bank and a Starbucks in the parking lot of a former Walmart.  When this reporter arrived on the scene I observed  at least 2 dozen cops including FBI agents standing guard around a blue sedan with both the driver and passenger windows obviously smashed out, glass scattered on the asphalt parking lot.  I was asked by a supervising Aurora fugitive task force Lieutenant not to take photos of the many plain-clothes and even uniformed officers as he said their identities and roles in the arrest were critical to keep anonymous.  The same held true for the numerous unmarked police vehicles that flooded the parking lot, some with red and blue LED police lights flashing.  I then observed several uniformed officers escorting a man in handcuffs to a marked police cruiser where he was placed inside and whisked away from sight.  I asked one unidentified cop at the scene about the dramatic arrest scene and he replied “Yes, it was a good pop!”  Several plain clothes and uniformed cops remained at the scene until a tow truck hooked the blue sedan and towed it away from in front of the bank.  Surprised civilians eyed the scene with apparent curiosity until the last police car left.  As of this writing no other details of this arrest are known to us at ColoradoNews1.com

Aurora Police are not releasing a mug shot of this suspect at this time as this is an ongoing investigation.  The identity of the victim, who remains in critical condition, is not being released at this time.  Aurora investigators would like to speak with anyone who may have witnessed this shooting or with anyone who has information about this case. Witnesses are asked to call Detective Mike Prince with the Major Crimes/Homicide Unit at 303.739.6127 or they can call Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720.913.7867. By using Crime Stoppers tipsters can remain anonymous and be eligible for a reward of up to $2,000 say police.  The case will be reviewed by the Arapahoe County District Attorney’s Office.  Shane Anthony reporting ColoradoNews1.com
