A man suspected of shooting two men early Friday has turned himself in, police said.

Rodney Leon Lewis, 39, was wanted on suspicion of attempted murder, Colorado Springs police said.

Police spokeswoman Lt. Catherine Buckley said the shooting happened shortly before 5 a.m. at 2013 Carmel Dr. near Monterey Road.

According to Buckley, the victims were 30- and 47-year-old men. The shooting left one of the men in serious condition and the other with minor injuries, she said. One man remains hospitalized and is expected to survive. The other has been released, police said.

Buckley said the shooting apparently happened at a party. Police believe the shooter was an attendee of the party and fired the shots after a "disturbance" occurred.

Anyone with information that could aid the investigation should call Colorado Springs police at 444-7000.
