- The man suspected of killing a police officer Wednesday and firing a bullet through a woman's windshield two days earlier apparently targeted strangers for the shocking daylight shootings.

Aurora police have ruled out the possibility that Brian Allen Washington knew Michael D. Thomas was an Aurora detective. Thomas was on duty at the time but was wearing civilian clothes and driving his own vehicle.

Aurora Police Chief Daniel Oates expressed relief Thursday that Washington is off the streets and stifled a rumor that a second gunman is at large.
