National Guard troops and El Paso County Sheriff's deputies answered a call of shots fired Monday near checkpoint No.1 in the Black Forest Fire area.

Sgt. James Anderson and Spc. Adam Bivins told The Gazette the shots were reported at 9:04 a.m., but no one had been injured.

El Paso County Sheriff's Office spokesman Lt. Jeff Kramer confirmed an area resident shot and killed an injured squirrel near the intersection of Raygor Road and Burgess Road.

Kramer said the man was within his property and there was no illegal activity.

According to the National Guard troops at the checkpoint, deputies asked the man to stop shooting. He stopped soon thereafter.
