Colorado Springs police are looking for a 19-year-old Alabama man who they say was involved in an April shooting that left two men wounded.

Justin Bowden, who is considered armed and dangerous, is wanted on a warrant charging two counts of attempted first-degree murder, police said.

Police have already arrested two other men - Trenton Porter, 21, and Frankie Craighead, 31 - in connection with the April 7 shooting at Roy P. Benavidez Park at 975 Afternoon Circle near East Fountain Boulevard and South Chelton Road in southeast Colorado Springs.

Porter was arrested on suspicion of two counts of attempted first-degree murder, and Craighead was arrested on suspicion of being an accessory to the crime, police said.

At the time of the shooting, police said it stemmed from a disturbance but provided no other details.

One of the victims suffered multiple gunshot wounds and survived. Witnesses said the other man was shot in the arm.
