A man who was a person of interest in the sexual assault of a child was found dead from a gunshot wound about 10:45 p.m. Monday by officers who had gone to speak with him, Colorado Springs police said.

Officers spoke to the man by telephone when they arrived at the house in the 2900 block of Strauss Lane, off West Fillmore Street, because they learned there were two children in the house, police said. The man agreed to send the children out, but then officers lost contact with the man, police said.

Police entered the home and found the man dead and the children sleeping, police said.

The man's name has not been released; the investigation is continuing.

Anyone with information can call police at 444-7000.
