A man and woman were questioned and released by investigators in the shooting death of a man in Divide on Saturday, but no criminal charges have been filed, according to the Teller County Sheriff's Office.

A man was fatally shot in the head by another man inside a home at the 400 block of Maid Marian Drive, in the Sherwood Forest subdivision.

According to the Sheriff's Office, the shooter called authorities around 4 a.m. to report that he had shot and killed a male intruder in his home.

He told investigators that he was "surprised" by the man's presence, authorities said.

Both the man and woman who live in the home knew the victim, and officials are investigating the relationship among the three, who are all in their 20s, the Sheriff's Office said.

The victim's identity will not be released until family members are notified, authorities said.
