The Denver suburb of Aurora is the site of another multiple shooting.

A gunman barricaded inside his home fired shots at police from a second-story window early today before he was killed as SWAT officers stormed the home. Police say they also found the bodies of two other men and a woman when they entered the house.

Police say the suspect kept officers at bay for nearly six hours after neighbors reported gunfire at 3 a.m. inside the modest townhome.

It isn't known if officers shot the suspect or if he shot himself.

The shootings occurred about four miles southeast of the Aurora Mall, where 12 people were killed and dozens were wounded by a gunman at a midnight showing of "The Dark Knight Rises" on July 20. The man charged in that shooting, James Holmes, goes to court Monday for a preliminary hearing in which prosecutors will present their case against him.
