The first victim in the rampage was Andrew Alan Myers, 35, of Colorado Springs. He was riding a bicycle when he was gunned down.

Then the gunman shot and killed Jennifer Michelle Vasquez, 42, and Christina Rose Baccus-Galella, 34, at a house on East Platte Avenue, police said.

All three died of gunshot wounds and their deaths were ruled homicides by the El Paso County Coroner, police said.
