Aurora police were searching for a suspect Sunday in an overnight shooting with four victims in a house near the 900 block of North Geneva Street, officials said in a 3 a.m. tweet.
About three hours later, police officials said on Twitter that the shooting had become a homicide investigation, but did not say how many of the four people who’d been shot have died.
Police identified the suspect as Joseph Castorena, 21. He is 5-foot-4 and with “slim build” and a lion tattoo on his neck, police said. Officials said they do not know what he was wearing.
