A man was found dead in an southeast Colorado Springs storage facility after police responded to a report of a shooting at a bar about five miles away Sunday night.

About 8:40 p.m., police arrived at the Angry Pirate Bar in the 2100 block of East Platte Avenue to investigate the report. Further investigation led them to a storage facility in the 3400 block of Astrozon Court, where they found a "deceased male who had suffered apparent trauma."

Police did not say where the shooting happened, or what time the body was found.

Police have said that all individuals involved in the incident are accounted for, and that there is no danger to the community.

No other information has been released.
