Colorado Springs Police detectives were probing an overnight shooting that left one man dead.

It occurred at about 2 a.m., according to a news release.

Police received a report of a "large disturbance and shooting in the vicinity of South Chelton Road and Pikes Peak Avenue," the news release said.

The victim, police said, was taken in a private vehicle to Fountain Boulevard and Chelton Road.

When officers arrived there, the man was dead.

Authorities didn't release additional information about the victim or details of the shooting.

Chelton between Claremont Street and Pikes Peak was closed for several hours during the morning's initial stages of investigation.

It was reopened by Saturday afternoon.

The 7-Eleven on Chelton and Fountain Boulevard was buzzing with activity at about 3 p.m.

One shopper said she had heard that the shooting occurred north of the store near University Drive and the body was dumped at Chelton and Fountain.

"I have to get out of this neighborhood," she said.

Authorities had nothing new to add by 6:15 p.m.

The coroner will rule whether the shooting death is the 11th homicide of 2014.

Police, meantime, are seeking help.

Anyone who has information about this case is asked to call (719) 444-7000; or Pikes Peak Area Crime Stoppers Inc.

at (719) 634-STOP (7867).

Callers do not have to give their names and could earn a cash reward.
