A man wanted as a suspect in a vehicular homicide apparently eluded police in Aurora on Tuesday after a street was sealed off and a SWAT team was called to the scene.
Multiple officers, including SWAT members, responded to the 14000 block of East Harvard Avenue on Tuesday afternoon looking for 27-year-old Joseph Benson, police said on social media.
Benson is wanted as a suspect in a May 3 two-vehicle crash at East Yale Avenue and South Vaughn Way that killed a man, police said. Benson allegedly ran away from the scene of the fatal crash.
