Police said a 17-year-old was intoxicated when he fired several shots into a neighborhood Monday morning.
Colorado Springs police responded to the 1900 block of Doherty Road, near Jetwing Drive and Chelton Road, after receiving reports that a teen was firing a gun in the middle of the street.
According to police, at least three shots were fired, one of which entered an occupied home. Gunfire also hit a car and a motorcycle parked inside of a garage, police said.
