Aurora Police Department release:

Aurora, Colo. - Aurora Police District 3 detectives are requesting the assistance of the media and the public in identifying a person wanted in connection with a shooting that occurred in Aurora.

On May 21, 2009, several rounds were fired from a gun into an Aurora home located in the 3900 block of S. Quatar Street. The residence was occupied by several people at the time of the shooting. The suspects quickly fled the scene in a small, white 4-door car before the arrival of responding officers. Thankfully, the officers discovered that no one had been injured.

Detectives, supported by Crime Scene Investigators (CSI), began tracking down those responsible for the shooting. The information learned during the course of this investigation took detectives to their first suspect: Steaven Henry Moore.

On Friday, June 12, 2009, Aurora Police Department's District 3 Direct Action Response Team (DART) arrested Steaven Moore, DOB: 05/24/1986, in connection with the shooting. He is currently being held for bond in the amount of $250,000 in the Arapahoe County Jail for Attempted Homicide. An arrest photo of Steaven Moore has been sent along with this news release.

Detectives have also developed limited information as to a second suspect. A photo of this suspect -- believed to be the person responsible for firing the gun -- has been released by detectives and sent along with this news release. Aurora Police are seeking information as to this second suspect's identity and whereabouts. The suspect is described as a black male, possibly in his late teens or 20's.

Anyone with information about the unidentified suspect or about this case is asked to contact Detective Steve Cox at (303) 627-3160, Sgt. Bob Wesner at (303) 627-3152, or Aurora Public Safety Communications (dispatch) at (303) 627-3100.
