Two people were let go after officers couldn't find any damage to tie them to an Aurora shooting Monday, but about $420 in gunshot damage was found in the area later that morning, police said.

Aurora police are investigating a shooting that happened early Monday and damaged an apartment building in the area, officials said Wednesday evening.

The shooting occurred at 12:35 a.m. at an apartment complex on the 400 block of East Indian Trail, according to a post on the Aurora Police Department's Facebook Wednesday.

Off-duty officers were driving home on Indian Trail at the time, when they heard shots near the apartment and saw an SUV speeding away, police said.

The officers called for backup and stopped the vehicle near Gates and Lehnertz Avenues, but at least one of the people inside the SUV fled and so far has not been located, according to the post.

The two people still inside the SUV were released after officers didn't find anything to tie them to the shooting, police said.

At 6:10 a.m. the same day, however, police were called back to the apartment building, where they found about $420 worth of gunshot damage, according to the post.

Many of the neighbors police interviewed said they heard shots coming from the area, but each reported seeing nothing, according to the post.

Anyone with information can call the Aurora Police Department at (630) 256-5500 or Crime Stoppers at (630) 892-1000.
