“Responding officers also encountered a large crowd of people leaving the area that were believed to have been attending a party,” police said in a news release.

The people who were shot were all males between 16 and 20 years old. They are all expected to survive.

Authorities said they had no suspect information to release.

The shooting comes amid a string of violence in Aurora in recent weeks. Nine people were shot in two different shootings outside of Aurora high schools earlier this month.
