About a half-hour long shooting spree erupted east of downtown Colorado Springs Saturday morning and three people were dead after a gunman moved through a residential neighborhood before he was slain in a shootout with police officers.

The first reports of the shootings came about 8:45 a.m. as Colorado Springs police were called to the 200 block of Prospect Street after multiple calls about gunshots, El Paso County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Jacqueline Kirby and Colorado Springs police spokeswoman Lt. Catherine Buckley said.

Authorities said the shooter was killed after opening fire on police officers.

The gunman reportedly had more than one weapon, but Kirby said it was not known if that was the case.
