Colorado Springs police investigated gunfire exchanged between two groups of people near a gas station in southeastern Colorado Springs on Tuesday.
Officers taped off a parking lot at the Loaf ‘N Jug near Airport Road and South Murray Boulevard after responding to reports of gunshots in the area at around 2:24 p.m., police said.
“We got a report of two groups of people shooting at each other, and then everyone took off,” Sergeant Jason Newton said.
No injuries were reported, and police were on scene gathering evidence. Newton said that police presence in the area could continue for several hours as officers gathered video surveillance, collected shell casings and interviewed witnesses.
According to police, the shootout began when a man and a woman walked up to the front of the store and began shooting toward the store and a black sedan parked in front of it. Two men reportedly emerged from the vehicle and returned fire before all four fled — the first two on foot, and the second duo in the car that was allegedly targeted.
The shootout damaged the front of the store building as well as a nearby car.
