Brighton officers investigating shooting

Brighton police are investigating a burglary in which a man was shot and a woman hospitalized for unspecified injuries. At about 3:25 a.m. Monday morning, police were dispatched to 260 S. Aspen Drive, in Brighton, on a report of a burglary and an individual with a gunshot wound. When officers arrived, they found a 39-year-old woman bleeding from injuries to her face, and a 25-year-old man with gunshot wounds to both legs. Both parties were transported to an area hospital, and are expected to survive. 

A couple who occupy the basement of the home reported being awakened by yelling from the upstairs residence; when they went upstairs to see what was happening, they saw a male dressed in all black and wearing a mask. The man told his wife to go back downstairs to call police and protect their four young children, saying the other male had a gun. The male resident then confronted the unidentified male, and was subsequently shot three times, twice in the left leg and once in the right.  Preliminary investigations and witness statements indicate there were two unidentified male intruders, who appear to have locked themselves in an upstairs bedroom and fled through a bedroom window shortly after the shooting occurred.  The case remains under investigation, and anyone with information about the incident or possible suspects is asked to call Detective Will McKeehan at (720) 685-8754.
