AURORA, Colo. -- (KDVR) -- The Aurora Police Department was on high alert Monday after a dispatch operator received an alarming and anonymous call. It is a concern for police and something the community should be aware of as well.
FOX31 Denver obtained the audio of the chilling call.
“It’s time that you guys know we are no longer playing around with the police departments. Aurora and Denver, we are about to start striking fear shooting down all cops that we see by their selves. This will go for the sheriff’s department. You guys are evicting innocent people. Let us catch you by yourself and it’s shots fired.”
The call came in about 5:50 p.m. Sunday. Local law enforcement is taking it very seriously.
While the anonymous call is still under investigation, Aurora police are also investigating a shooting from later Sunday night where officers were called to a scene, then shot at. It is unclear if the incidents are related.
The alarming threats come as a wave of anti-police sentiment sweeps across the country.
Officers from Aurora and Denver say they will continue to do their jobs despite the threats.
Aurora police is investigating both incidents. All officers remain on high alert but assure that public safety is not threatened.
