Aurora, Colorado — A man suspected of shooting a gun at his home on Sunday morning was detained after an hour of SWAT.
A family living in Block 1300 on N. Geneva Street in Aurora told police that they woke up to a gunshot at 4 am on Sunday. Later that morning, the homeowner called the Aurora police and reported that multiple bullets had come through the bedroom window. According to police, no one was injured at home.
Police officers determined that the bullet had been fired from the next house. Aurora police said police officers were familiar with the neighbor identified as Christopher Gott. This is because the police answered a phone call that involved him in the past.
Gott is alleged to have violated an extreme risk protection warrant that temporarily prevents individuals at high risk of harming themselves or others from possessing firearms. The warrant requires that all firearms be temporarily surrendered.
Aurora’s SWAT team and crisis communicator responded home around 2 pm and detained Gott. According to police, they tried to contact him for more than three hours using the phone and speakers.
Meanwhile, first responders saw Gott holding a gun and said he shot it once while he was in the house.
Just before 5:30 pm, SWAT tried to distract Gott in the backyard with a flash van, but used K9 to detain him.
Police said Gott was treated in the hospital for minor injuries caused by a dog bite and then released. No one else was injured during the incident.
Gott was detained for an unpaid warrant. Accusations of weapons violations are pending and are awaiting filing with the 18th Judicial District Law Firm.
