A spokesman for the Aurora police department, Officer Matthew Longshore, told TIME in an emailed response that the victims included two girls, one boy and two adult men.
Longshore said police had received a 911 call just before 11 p.m. on Saturday reporting that someone had been shot and that officers were on the scene “in less than 90 seconds.”
Law enforcement said they are looking for at least one suspect and indicated that no one has been arrested yet. Longshore said that there “could possibly be more suspects” and the motive remained unclear as authorities were “still trying to interview everyone involved.”
