Aurora police said the 36-year-old man is a former Greenwood Village Police Officer.

They believe it started with an argument between the man and the group of teens about alleged careless driving through the neighborhood.

In the video, a teen can be seen raising his arm, and the adult can be seen pointing what appears to be a gun back at him -- followed by what sounds like multiple gunshots, and then panic.

It's unclear who fired the first shot, but Aurora police said both the teen and the adult shot at each other, and they were both hit.

Alex Ramos, who lives in the neighborhood, said he heard six to eight gunshots total.

"And I honestly didn't [know] that it was gunshots. I didn't think it was anything happening here," he said.

Aurora police said the 17-year-old boy was pronounced dead at the hospital. His name still hasn't been released.

The former officer involved was taken to the hospital and is expected to survive. His name also hasn't been released. No arrests have been made.
