Witnesses on Saturday described a horrifying scene on the streets east of downtown Colorado Springs, where a gunman armed with a rifle killed three people before being fatally shot by police.
The suspect and victims have not been identified, and police are looking for a motive.
Aaron Nicks, who said he lives on the east side of Wahsatch, told reporters that he was taking his dog out around 9 a.m. when he saw police shoot the suspect.
Nicks said police fired several times before the man fell to the ground. Police quickly attended to the suspect and loaded him into a vehicle, Nicks said.
The Colorado Springs Fire Department responded to a report of a gunshot victim about 8:45 a.m. at 230 N. Prospect, where firefighters also extinguished a small fire. Fire Department spokesman Capt. Steve Oswald said he thought the gunshot victim was related to the shots-fired report.
Law enforcement officials investigated multiple crime scenes into the evening, and roads were closed into the late evening. Police escorted residents of Prospect until it was reopened about 9:45 p.m. The intersection at Wahsatch and Platte was reopened about 5:30 p.m.
The Sheriff's Office has asked that anyone in the area of Platte and Wahsatch who may have had damage to their home or vehicle related to the shootings between 8:30 and 9 a.m. Saturday call 390-5555.
