Mayor John Suthers called the deadly Colorado Springs shooting spree near the downtown area over the weekend "a terrible tragedy."
In a statement released Monday morning, Suthers said he wanted "to convey our heartfelt sympathies to the families and friends of the victims of this crime."
On Saturday morning, a gunman killed three people in a rampage near downtown Colorado Springs, police said. The man was killed in a shootout with police on the 200 block of North Prospect Street.
The gunman has been identified by neighbors and acquaintances as Noah Harpham, a 33-year-old who was known to live quietly at 230 N. Prospect Street.
Two of the victims were identified as Christy Galella and Jennifer Vasquez, according to family members. The name of the third victim, a bicyclist who was riding in the neighborhood, has not been released.
A vigil was held Sunday night in the downtown area to honor the victims in the shooting rampage.
"I am gratified that neighbors and neighborhood organizations in the area of the crime have rallied to honor the victims and support their families and friends," Suthers said in his statement.
Colorado Springs police and the El Paso County Sheriff Department are investigating the deadly shooting through early Monday.
