Police tweeted around 3:30 a.m. that a man had been shot in a parking lot of the Riviera Motel and later died at a local hospital.
Aurora Police Chief Nick Metz said the officer who shot Torres, a 13-year-veteran who has never been involved in a shooting before, was one of several from specialized fugitive teams trying to arrest Michael Adrian Torres, 24, but was the only one who fired. Other officers fired less-lethal foam bullets at the car, Metz said
The shooting happened around 3 p.m. Saturday near East Colfax Avenue and Sable Boulevard. “The officers rendered aid to the suspect, who was transported to a local hospital with serious injuries,” police said in a statement.
