Surveillance video captures gunshots in Aurora church shooting


AURORA, Colo. (KDVR) – The Problem Solvers has obtained new surveillance video of a shooting that left a woman dead in Aurora on Friday night.

Several religious groups rent space in the Buckley Industrial Park to hold their services.

An Aurora church service turned deadly on Friday night. According to the police, 15 to 20 people were inside this building for their weekly duty when shots rang out.

“It just doesn’t make sense, especially in a church. It’s a place where you find God and it’s just a bad place to be,” Maximiliano said.

Maximiliano works across the street at A&R Auto Repair Shop.

He has surveillance video from that night that shows when first responders arrived.

“Some of my friends here who work here have told us how cops just pulled over and firefighters, an ambulance came and they heard gunshots.”

A 36-year-old woman was killed and two men in their 40s were also shot and are ministering at the church, but the men are fine.

“Of course anyone who loses their life is sad, but I feel like today it doesn’t matter where you are. Something bad can happen anywhere,” said Taylor Bailey, who works at the airport.

“You have to watch out for each other, you know. Protect yourself, don’t go out too late. It’s crazy that anything can happen in this world you know, you can walk down the street or whatever. You must be careful.”

Another company’s cameras captured what looked like gunshots. The police told us that one of the victims knew the person who pulled the trigger.

“Unfortunately, I feel like there’s just a lot of anger. There’s more evil in the world right now, I personally think, then there’s good,” Bailey said.

As of 5 p.m., no arrests had been made and the slain victim had not been identified.

Anyone who may have seen anything suspicious or has information about this case and has not yet spoken to police is asked to 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.
