Three killed, nine injured in weekend shootings in Aurora, Denver, Greeley


Three people were killed and nine people were injured in at least seven weekend shootings in Aurora, Denver and Greeley.

Of the fatal shootings, two were in Denver and one was in Greeley.

On Friday night, the body of a woman was found in the back of her car in Greeley after she went missing before closing the nutrition store where she worked.

Police responded to Nuco Nutrition just before 8 p.m., where they found a “large amount of blood,” and the business appeared to be broken into. The woman’s car was found about 10:30 p.m., and she was found in the back of it. Police have arrested a suspect in a first-degree murder and sexual-assault investigation.

Also on Friday evening, a 17-year-old teenage boy was injured in an Aurora shooting near a car wash in the Hoffman Heights area. Police said the teen walked in an emergency room with non-life-threatening injuries, and they do not yet know a motive for the shooting.

Two men were also shot in Denver Friday night, and one of the men died at the hospital. The shooting happened in the Villa Park area, near West 10th Avenue and Sheridan Boulevard, police said in a 12:06 a.m. Saturday tweet.

On Saturday, a woman was injured in a Denver shooting in the 4200 block of North Quivas Street.
