Some violent crime in Aurora on downward trend, despite violent weekend

1 min read


AURORA, Colo. (KDVR) — Some violent crime in Aurora is on a downward trend so far this year, despite a violent weekend.

That may sound surprising to some people, especially after four shootings over the weekend in Colorado’s second-largest city.

Firearm-related murders and aggravated assaults peaked in February 2022 at 220, according to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation. They’ve been trending down since then.

In January of this year, the number dropped to 124. Murders are down 33% in Aurora during the first two months of this year compared to last year. Non-fatal shootings are down 12.8% during the same time period.

But they are still at elevated levels that began in 2020.
