Former Greenwood Village cop facing charges in connection with fatal shooting of teen in Aurora

An ex-Greenwood Village cop has been charged with second-murder in connection to the shooting death of a teen in Aurora.

Adam Holen, 36, who worked for Greenwood Village Police Department since 2016, had resigned from the police force at the beginning of November before the fatal shooting.

Holen, according to Aurora police, had exchanged gunfire with 17-year-old Peyton Blitstein on Nov. 24 outside of a home in the 4900 block of South Addison Way. Doorbell camera video footage showed an argument between Holen and a group of teens allegedly over careless driving in the neighborhood.

Both Holen and Blitstein were shot, police said, but Blitstein was killed.

Holen is charged with felony second-degree murder, felony menacing, misdemeanor prohibited use of a weapon and two counts of violent crime sentence enhancers, according to the Arapahoe District Attorney’s Office.
