Multiple shots fired at Centennial homes

Investigators asking public for help


Investigators with Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office are asking for help finding the person, or people, who fired gunshots into multiple homes in Centennial, the agency announced in a news release Sept. 20

Around 8:30 p.m. on Sept. 18, dispatchers received reports from multiple callers about shots being fired near East Progress Circle and South Flanders Court in Centennial, according to the release. There were no injuries.  

One caller reported hearing five shots being fired and “then a vehicle take-off at a high rate of speed while firing five more shots,” the release said. 

A resident who lives in the 5200 block of South Flanders Street reported a bullet went through his living room window, the release said. The bullet went through another wall, a box of toys and the armrest of a chair where a 7-year-old boy was playing on his computer, according to the release.

“Because the boy was playing a video game, he was leaning forward and missed the bullet by just a few inches,” the release said.
