The Gardens on Havana commercial mall is located south of Mississippi Avenue, and police say they were called to a gunshot at the corner of South Havana Street and East Idaho Place.
According to the Police Department, they located one victim of gunfire and rushed him to the hospital for treatment. APD said the 48-year-old male victim succumbed to his wounds.
The individual was named Stephen Dennis Qualls by the Arapahoe County Coroner’s Office.
An acquaintance from Qualls’s youth who came to celebrate his birthday two weeks ago praised him as a “noble” and “strong-willed man.”
He has been described as “gentle” by another lifelong buddy, who adds that he is a “mentor to young Black men in his circle.”
Aurora police claim that at the time of the sh00ting, there were two other people and two small children in the car with Qualls. There has been no word on whether or not Qualls was at the wheel.
Between Mississippi Avenue and Mexico Avenue, police blocked off all lanes of South Havana Street to conduct their investigation. Around 5:45 a.m. on Tuesday, all roads were opened again.
