Hinkley High School is located just three miles from Central High School, which is near where six teenagers were shot on Monday.

The six teens were reportedly at Nome Park - steps away from Aurora Central High School - when the suspects let off dozens of shots from a vehicle.

All six victims were students at Central High School.

APD Chief Vanessa Wilson called the shooting a ...very concerning incident,... as one teen underwent emergency surgery.

The six victims include one 14-year-old, a 15-year-old, two 16-year-olds, a 17-year old, and an 18-year-old.

None of the victims have died, police confirmed.

Cops confirmed in a statement to The Sun that no arrests have yet been made in that shooting.


Witness Henry Martinez, who resides across the street from Nome Park, revealed to CB4 Denver he heard something that sounded like ...30 to 50... gunshots.

He told the news outlet: ...It’s sad to see young people just throwing their lives away for nothing.
