Aurora shooting: Two people shot in Hinkley High School parking lot

Two people were shot Friday in the parking lot of Hinkley High School in Aurora, police said.

Both victims have been taken to a local hospital, Aurora police said in a 12:22 p.m. tweet.

The shooting comes just days after six teens were injured in a drive-by shooting at a park across the street from a different Aurora high school.

Hinkley High School, at 1250 Chambers Road, is on lockdown, and Aurora Public Schools plans to send out information to parents on how and when to pick up their children, police said.

All after-school activities and athletics have been canceled, Hinkley High School officials tweeted.

On Monday, six teens were shot in a park across the street from Aurora Central High School. All six victims, who ranged in age from 14 to 18, were students at Aurora Central High School. None of their injuries were considered life-threatening, but two remained hospitalized.

In the wake of that shooting, city and interfaith leaders planned a peace march Friday — but just as they were about to get underway, word of the Hinkley shooting made its way to organizers.

The organizers let the city know that they were postponing the event, Aurora officials tweeted.
