Warrant executions at two Colorado Springs homes Saturday evening rapidly deteriorated into standoffs at both locations.

Investigators say the two standoffs may be related, but would not provide any other information about the search warrants or the suspects inside.

As of 7 a.m. Sunday, Colorado Springs police have not said if either standoff ended with an arrest.

"We came home and saw a whole bunch of SWAT vehicles and emergency vehicles in the church parking lot down the street so we knew something was happening," said Jen Soto, who lives near the house on Walnut Street where one of the standoffs took place.

"They threw, like, a flash bomb earlier and, like, were flying, like, bean bags at the house and had the lights set up on it," said another neighbor, Deb Ray.

Negotiators warned the people inside that they could not guarantee their safety if they did not exit the house, but still no one came out.

East across Interstate 25 the second standoff was unfolding at Prospect Lake Drive and East Moreno Avenue. KKTV's crew at that the scene said the man inside the home was yelling at officers to back off.
