  • The six teens all attend Aurora Central High School.

  • None of the injuries were considered life-threatening, according to NBC News.

  • Suspects remain at large.
  • Wilson said that gang specialists are investing what happened, per NBC News.

Wilson told CNN that the shooting is a sign of how dangerous gun violence can be for people.
