An Aurora man was fatally shot Sunday night after leaving a child’s birthday party in the west suburb.

Officers responding to a report of a shooting about 10:30 p.m. in the 600 block of High Street found 31-year-old Andres Ochoa unconscious and unresponsive, according to a statement from Aurora police. He was taken to Provena Mercy Medical Center in Aurora, where he was pronounced dead.

Investigators later learned that he had just left a child’s birthday party prior to the shooting, police said. Officers also found two people in the area who had “non-shooting related injuries.” They were treated at the scene, but were uncooperative with investigators.

The investigation is ongoing, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Aurora Police Department at (630) 256-5500, or Crime Stoppers at (630) 892-1000.
