Aurora Police Chief Vanessa Wilson said that officers are searching for multiple shooters, CBS-4 Denver reported. “This was a fight that started in this parking lot and then it went into a shooting,” Chief Wilson was quoted as saying.

Shooting broke out Monday near Aurora Central High School, also in the Aurora Public Schools district.

“We are tired of this,” Chief Wilson was quoted as saying.

An APS security officer was immediately on the scene and helped secure and lock down the school following the shooting. A cellphone video obtained by the news station reveals multiple gunshots during the incident. None of the injuries were believed to be life-threatening.
