VIDEO: Colorado Police on Alert After Threatening Call

The Aurora Police Department was on high alert Monday after a dispatch operator received an alarming and anonymous call threatening local law enforcement, reports FOX31 Denver.

FOX31 Denver obtained the audio of the call: "It's time that you guys know we are no longer playing around with the police departments. Aurora and Denver, we are about to start striking fear shooting down all cops that we see by their selves. This will go for the sheriff's department. You guys are evicting innocent people. Let us catch you by yourself and it's shots fired."

The call came in about 5:50 p.m. Sunday. Local law enforcement is taking it very seriously.

While the anonymous call is still under investigation, Aurora police are also investigating a shooting from later Sunday night where officers were called to a scene, then shot at. It is unclear if the incidents are related.

Officers from Aurora and Denver say they will continue to do their jobs despite the threats.

Aurora police is investigating both incidents. All officers remain on high alert but police say public safety is not threatened.

God Bless all of you, you have more supporters then you realize.

It would seem that an eviction caused this, however the caller might have been trying to complicate the call by saying that. The war on Officers is intensifying so watch your backs and all sides brothers and sisters in blue!

Utilized back tracking technologies and find whoever sent such an open, deadly threat. Prosecute to the fullest extent of the law and allow no plea deals.
