On May 29, three black males walked up to three white males moving into an apartment and allegedly demanded money at gunpoint. One of the three residents pulled a gun and opened fire, killing one on the alleged robbers, critically wounding a second, and injuring the third.
The incident occurred around 11 pm in Aurora, Colorado.
According to CBS Denver, “three white males in their 20s were moving into an apartment building when they were approached by three black males between the ages of 16-20 in the foyer of the apartment building.” The three black males allegedly “demanded money at gunpoint.”
Aurora Police Chief Nick Metz says that two of the three would-be victims began handing money over to the suspects when the third pulled his own gun and began shooting.
The citizen who defended himself and his two companions was questioned by police then released. Arapahoe County District Attorney George Brauchler commented: “I don’t think we would call this necessarily a make-my-day issue. This is a straight up regular common sense statutorily codified self defense.”
