About 11 p.m. Oct. 7, a 911 caller reported multiple gunshots and a man lying on the sidewalk in the 6400 block of Tranters Creek Way. Horne, 20, was found unconscious and not breathing. 

Horne graduated from Widefield High School in 2016, said Widefield School District 3 spokeswoman Samantha Briggs. Gazette archive photos show a Kenyatta Horne as playing football for the school.

Wheeler, a former Fort Carson soldier, was discharged from the Army in April, Army records show.
