A juvenile was taken into custody for alleged possession of a weapon following an incident in Aurora on Tuesday.

According to the Aurora Police Department, officers responded to the 800 blk. of Spruce St. at around 3:15 p.m. following reports of a person with a weapon in the 800 blk. of Spruce St.

Upon arrival, officers allegedly spotted a teenager matching the same description that was given to 911 dispatchers.

The suspect allegedly ran from the scene, resulting in a foot chase. Officials say the teenager ran into a home in the 100 blk. of N. Highland and allegedly would not respond to request from officers to come out.

Additional officers responded to the scene and the teenager eventually came out of the home on his own. The department's Special Response Team then searched the home to make sure no one else was inside.

Officers located a gun on the scene and the juvenile was taken into custody. No injuries were reported.
