Jan. 15 (UPI) — Police in Colorado arrested a 16-year-old male suspected of a weekend apartment shooting that left five people injured in suburban Denver, authorities announced.

The Aurora Police Department said it made the arrest Monday, less than 48 hours after the shooting. Authorities withheld the name of the suspect because he is a juvenile.

The teen faces attempted first-degree murder charges along with other offenses.

Police launched a manhunt for the suspect immediately after receiving reports of the shooting around 11 p.m.
